Skills Showcase: Featuring First Nations, Inuit, and Métis Skills

Skills/Compétences Canada is partnering with First Nations, Inuit, and Métis organizations from Manitoba to host a Skills Showcase at the 2023 Skills Canada National Competition, in Winnipeg, that will feature First Nations, Inuit and Métis Skills. This showcase will help Indigenous youth grow in confidence and celebrate their skills while exploring various career opportunities in skilled trades and technologies. 

The showcase will focus on the intergenerational transfer of many traditional skills such as beading, soapstone carving and textile design from Elders, local First Nations, Inuit, and Métis artists and experts to youth. It will demonstrate the links between these skills and potential careers in the skilled trades and technologies. 

For example, carving skills can foster interest in skilled careers such as carpentry, bricklaying, or cabinetmaking and Indigenous art can spark interest in fashion technology, graphic design and many others.
