The Pathways Team in Curriculum & Instructional Services in collaboration with the York Catholic District School Board and Workforce Planning Board of York Region invites families of students in Grades 9-11 to attend a Skilled Trades and Technology Career Planning Information Night. The goal of this event is to inspire students to take their first step towards a career in industries that are constantly innovating, on the cutting edge of emerging technologies, and making a critical difference in people’s lives. Students will have the opportunity to learn about some of Ontario’s 140+ trades through presentations, a career panel and information booths. They will hear directly from former York Region students, tradespeople and local employers about life-changing career opportunities.
This event is taking placefrom 6:30 p.m. - 8:45 p.m. on Wednesday, December 6, 2023 at Our Lady Queen of the World (10475 Bayview Ave, Richmond Hill, ON).
