About Skills Canada

Who we are.

Skills/Compétences Canada is a national, not-for-profit organization that actively promotes careers in skilled trades and technologies to Canadian youth. Along with our private sector partners, we are helping to secure Canada’s future skilled labour needs. Since its inception in 1989, S/CC has evolved into a pan-Canadian organization offering skilled trades and technology competitions at the regional, provincial/territorial, national and international levels as well as other awareness programs for thousands of young Canadians.


The mandate of S/CC is as follows:

What we do.

A misunderstanding of the value of careers in trades and technologies inhibits many young Canadians from considering these types of career options. Through provincial/territorial, national and international skills competitions, S/CC helps make these occupations more visible for teachers, students, parents and the general public. The competitions also provide a competitive atmosphere where these careers are seen as worthy and desirable.

Why we are needed.

Over the next two decades, employers in Canada will find it difficult to hire and retain skilled workers. We want to help Canada’s industries find well-trained, well-prepared young people to fill these positions. S/CC wants youth to understand the many opportunities, benefits and rewards of skilled trade and technology careers. Improving the expertise and confidence of individuals pursuing technical careers will benefit us all.
