Trades & Technology Apprenticeship
Skills Competitions - Skills Canada
Its mandate is to actively promote careers in skilled trades and technologies to Canadian youth. This includes promoting regional, provincial, national and international skills competitions.
For more information go to the Skills Canada mission page.
The organization, known officially as Skills/Compétences Canada (S/CC), estimates that over the next 2 decades employers will find it difficult to find and keep skilled workers. So as part of its mandate it has developed the Skilled Trades: A Career You Can Build On national awareness campaign to educate young Canadians about skilled trades and technology careers.
The national skills competition is held annually and draws about 500 competitors in 40 different trade and technology areas.
The 2014 Skills Canada competition will be in Toronto, Ont.
