Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the 2020 Skills Canada National Competition was cancelled. We wish to thank the sponsors and the volunteers that have committed to showcasing the RV Career opportunities with us.

We look forward to the 2021 Skills Canada National Competition in Quebec City!

There is a lot to be grateful for during this pandemic. While we could not attend this event this year, your generosity and support meant a great deal to us! We look forward to getting back to business as usual!

Skills/Competences Canada
(SCC) is mandated to promote skilled trade and technology career options to Canadian youths. SCC wants youth to be aware of the many opportunities, benefits and rewards of skilled trade and technology careers. We also want our country to have a skilled workforce so that Canada will continue to prosper and remain at the forefront of the global economy.

Each year, SCC and its member organizations offer a variety of programs and activities across Canada that engages over 350,000 youth. The main events are skilled trade and technology competitions, beginning at the regional level, followed by provincial/territorial, national and lastly the international level. All of these programs highlight the importance of the nine Essential Skills, which are crucial in today’s careers.

SCNC is the only national, multi-trade and technology competition for students and apprentices in the country. Every year, more than 550 students and apprentices from across Canada come to SCNC to compete in over 40 skilled trade and technology contests.

Through these competitions, Skills/Competences Canada seeks to raise awareness about Skilled trade and technology sectors to youths and their influencers.

RVDA of Canada has been participating in the annual Skills Canada National Competition since 2013 as a Try-A-Trade® and Technology partner. We have seen booth traffic increase, year after year. We continue to attract people to experience and ask questions about the RV Service Technician trade and other career opportunities.
This event is open to everyone! All the elementary and high schools in the region are invited to attend.

The proportion of spectators with a positive perception of skilled trades and technologies grew from 76% before attending the 2019 competition to 91% after attending the competition. The impact is greater in 2019 than in previous years.

We're very excited about our Try-A-Trade activity and our "highly" interactive booth. We need you to be present to help convey your passion for RVs to youths and their influencers (teachers, parents, grandparents, counsellors etc.) and to the general public through social media.
If you have people skills, and believe in promoting this trade to future generations, contact Anita Lien at RVDA of Canada at 604.718.6306.
