Established in 1992, Skills Canada Alberta (SCA) is a not-for-profit provincial association, which serves as a critical link between employers, educators, labour groups and the government to reposition trade and technical careers as a first choice career option for youth in Alberta. They are a part of the national association, Skills Canada, which has offices in each territory and province in Canada.
To meet current demands and in anticipation of future trends, Skill Canada Alberta works to equip young minds with the skills that will help Canada compete successfully in a drastically changing world market. This is accomplished through programming targeted at junior high, senior high and post-secondary students.
High school students begin their journey with Skills Canada either with either a Regional or Qualifying Skills Canada Competition, or through in-school selection for skill areas not offered in their region. Post-Secondary students apply to compete, with a reference from their technical institute.
At this provincial competition, High School students will compete in skills featuring 3D Computer Animation, Architechtural Design, Carpentry, Welding, Fashion Technology, Hairstyling, Public Speaking and more. Post-secondary students will show off skills such as Aerospace Technology, Autobody Repair, Landscape Gardening, Photography, Plumbing, Sheetmetal Work and more.
It is free to come watch the competitions.
