Watch for next year when we are carrying out two sets of school tours in order to provide coverage to the students during different semesters, this is so everyone has the best chance of being involved at the ground level of manufacturing.

What is asked of our association members when involved with the school tours:

The HMA is looking for companies willing to offer a tour of their facilities for a group of approximately 20 high school students. Tours are 1 hour- 1.5 hours in length. The HMA encourages manufacturers to offer tours as an effective means of encouraging young people to think about future careers in manufacturing.

For more details, or if you are interested in providing a School Bus Tour, contact the HMA through e-mail info@huronmanufacturing.ca

What is the purpose of the tours?

This is a chance for Manufacturers to showcase what they do to our future workforce. Sell yourself to the upcoming workforce in Huron County! If you offer summer employment opportunities, Co-op opportunities, Hire right out of high school, Do apprenticeships or have specific educational requirements, let the students know.

Our intent is to enable all students to experience what is available in Huron County.  We have a wide range of manufactures in the area and it is important for our students to understand that they do not have to leave their hometown area to do the things they dream about!
