HMA School Bus Tours

October 3 – 7, 2022

The HMA School Bus Tours returned in October 2022!

Students, Teachers and Manufacturers met up again in October when 5 Huron County Secondary Schools climbed the bus to tour HMA members facilitates and learn about Manufacturing in Huron County.

Thanks to Avon Maitland District School Board and Huron Perth Catholic District School Board for supporting the tours this year with bus costs.

Thanks to Cap Products Canada Inc for supplying the students with PPE Safety Glasses for the tours.

Thanks to Libro Credit Union for supporting this program in its formative years.

Contact us if you have a facility to share with students coming up again in May and October.

Join us where the HMA School Bus Tours are ALWAYS a great success! Thank You to all involved.

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.

Have you provided the HMA and Huron County High School Students a previous HMA School Bus Tour?

Are you interested in providing this opportunity again?

PREVIOUS Manufacturers and NEW Manufacturers are much appreciated.

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

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 manufacturers 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!
