ApprenticeSearch.com is powered by HIEC, a not-for-profit social enterprise with a focus on partnership, mentorship and workforce development.
For almost 30 years, we’ve been working in the community to help build better connections between educators, employers and the students who will make up the future workforce. On any given day at HIEC, we’re busy running our flagship Career Awareness Program, facilitating meaningful experiential learning opportunities, hosting inspiring community events, and managing multiple online communities with a focus on workforce development.
Why do we do what we do? We believe that students will be more successful if they are empowered to make informed and inspired career choices, connected with opportunities for experiential learning, and supported in managing their transition from school to career.
It’s not just students that benefit from our work. In the long term, employers profit from a better-prepared workforce of students that are ready to transition from learning to working.

HIEC-ApprenticeSearch.com’s head office is located in Burlington, Ontario. Burlington as we know it today is rich in history and modern traditions of many First Nations and the Métis. From the Anishinaabeg to the Haudenosaunee, and the Métis – our lands spanning from Lake Ontario to the Niagara Escarpment are steeped in Indigenous history.
The territory is mutually covered by the Dish with One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement between the Iroquois Confederacy, the Ojibway and other allied Nations to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. We would like to acknowledge that the land on which we gather is part of the Treaty Lands and Territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit.
