Please note that competitions will fill up to capacity quickly. Please register under alternate competitor registration if the competition is already full, so if a spot opens up a draw will be made to fill the vacant seat.
Just a friendly reminder about eligibility requirements for our Provincial Skills Competition as this is the qualifying year for World Skills Competition. Please note that we encourage competitors from post/secondary/apprentices/training institutions who are under age 30 as our funding agreement with ESDC/Skills Canada only supports competitors from ages 15-30. Please be aware when selecting a candidate representing your institution who is outside of the eligibility requirements at our Provincial Skills Competition, they are not eligible to move on to worlds if they win at the national competition.
Competitors successful in winning a Gold Medal in the National Skills Competition will be invited to advance to the World Skills Competition, in competition areas that qualify from the World Skills organization list of competitions. An age restriction applies at the World Competition. This restriction indicates that in the qualifying year for the World Competition the competitor must be 22 years of age or younger. In Canada, they cannot hold journey ticket status.
Please complete the online registration form if you are a teacher adviser, volunteer or judge for the upcoming Provincial Skills Competition April 12/13 at Evraz Place in Regina. The forms are found under Provincial Skills Competition. We are always looking for people to help us out at this amazing event. Thanks in advance for your commitment to Skills Canada Saskatchewan.
Canada’s economic landscape is changing. To see how, one need look no further than the March 22 federal budget and follow the money. Big chunks of funding will be delivered to the likes of artificial intelligence (AI), clean tech, the digital economy and agri-food.
Missing from the budget, however, was any explicit mention of the skilled trades or apprentices or of the role they will play in Canada’s new innovation-centred economy. Despite the focus on skills and massive investments in infrastructure, building the knowledge and capacity of Canada’s trades people was largely overlooked.
