DEWALT Tool Enhancement Program
Skills/Compétences Canada (SCC) and Stanley Black & Decker have been in partnership since 2011. DEWALT has shown tremendous support as an Official Supplier for approximately 14 competition areas at the Skills Canada National Competition (SCNC) by providing Stanley hand tools and DEWALT power tools for competitor use. In addition, due to their financial support, SCC is proud to recognize DEWALT as an Official Sponsor of the competition.
Following SCNC, the tools used during the event are donated to eligible schools in the province in which SCNC is held through the DEWALT Tool Enhancement Program. This valuable tool collection is distributed among chosen schools through an application process. The tool package includes a variety of Stanley hand tools and DEWALT power tools such as cordless power tools, miter saws, scroll saws, and accessories. Six local schools have annually received equipment for use in their trade and technology programs since the inception of this partnership. The Tool Enhancement Program has proven to be a lasting legacy for the provinces in which the national competition is hosted.
In addition to their support of the Skills Canada National Competition, Stanley Black & Decker has become involved as a WorldSkills Team Canada Gold Level Supplier.
This partnership continues to grow and benefit young Canadian tradespeople prior to, during, and after the competition.
