2023 HWCDSB Pathways Night

On Thursday, November 2, 2023, the Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board is hosting Pathways Night, an annual event for all students in Grades 8-12+, and their parents. This year's event will take place in-person from 5:30pm - 8:00pm at LiUNA Station, 360 James Street North in Hamilton, Ontario.

Pathways Night provides an opportunity for students to explore pathways to post-secondary education, employment and community living, and to discover school and local programming/supports to assist them on their journey through secondary school and beyond.

This year's event features over 50 exhibits from colleges, universities, unions, local employers, community organizations, and HWCDSB programs. Attendees will be provided with takeaway items and have the opportunity to win door prizes.

Although registration to attend is not mandatory, it is highly encouraged. Students who register prior to attending Pathways Night will be entered into a draw to win a door prize. Prizes will be distributed at the event.
