Skills Canada National Competition

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.
