HIEC Virtual Career Lab

HIEC has been supporting young people to make inspired and informed career decisions for over 30 years and we are going to continue offering our career awareness programming to you online! 

What is the HIEC - Virtual Career Lab?

We want young people to keep imagining their futures, planning for tomorrow and learning about occupations. Our goal is to support educators, parents and students participating in Ontario’s at home learning program by starting and keeping career conversations going. It is a great way to enhance your at home program with fun ideas that can be shared in the community. 

Our first element includes a fun activity related to careers in the essential services for all grade levels. Learning about occupations in the essential services is also a great place to start and to help raise the spirits of our front line workers. 

Want to know how to get started?  Check out the videos, upload the resources below and continue the career conversations! Watch this space for more announcements and activities.
