Skills Canada National Competition Comes to Vancouver!

The Skills Canada Competition is the première event where students and apprentices compete in over 40 trade and technology fields, including carpentry and cabinetmaking (also welding, masonry, landscaping, hairstyling, cooking, website development  graphic design, computer animation and robotics).  The national event brings the best of over 500 students from regions across the country.  It’s a really exciting environment and I’m looking forward to being there again (although instead of competing, as I did in 2005, I’ll be working in the Lee Valley Tools Ltd. booth).

What’s really cool about the event is that you are able to try some things yourself in their Try-a-Trade & Technology area.  There are also over 50 booths from schools and industries and a main stage where presentations and demonstrations will take place.

Best of all, admission is free!  This year, the event is at BC Place, 777 Pacific Boulevard, Vancouver, Thursday June 6 and Friday June 7 from 9am – 4pm.

I would be delighted if you left a comment!
