LIEEP Continues to Offer Students
Valuable Career Insight

On Thursday June 2, our Stratford SRG office hosted another LIEEP (Light Industrial Employment Education Program) session. This session was in partnership with Waterloo Catholic District School Board and FIO Automotive Canada Corporation in Stratford.

One station was the SRG Skills Centre, a virtual centre for automotive assembly; the second station was for food processing and the third station was for job search strategies.

Special thanks to Tara Fitzgerald and Judy Carley from the Waterloo Catholic District School Board as well as Debbie Cuthbert (HR Manager) and the team at FIO for their support and assistance of LIEEP. Together, we have opened the door for potential future career opportunities for these students.
