Developing Your Workforce

Let us help you tap our local talent while supporting our youth through their educational journey.

The IEC creates partnerships between the education sector and employers through strategic experiential learning programs. We have the ability to uniquely reach an audience of 24,000 secondary students and 67,000 post-secondary students of which 18-23% graduate in any given year. Short, medium and long-term strategies drive their career development.
The IEC will introduce your organization to the school community and bring you into the conversation with students, job seekers and families as they explore their educational plans and career aspirations.  In partnership with Edge Factor, we effectively communicate your message through compelling video. Your leadership matters.
