It’s great to see the enthusiasm and dedication of the competitors and their coaches; and the level of competition helps champion the future of the skilled trades in Canada. At Cenovus Energy, we realize the important contribution that skilled trades and technology workers make to our industry. In fact, our business would not be able to successfully operate without these talented people. That’s why Cenovus works with partners, like Skills Canada, and events like the National Skills Competition that serve as a strong link between employers, educators, labor and government. It’s important that we all work together to reposition trade and technology careers as a viable and rewarding career option for Canada’s youth.
