Level Up! with Skills Canada

Level Up! with Skills Canada
February 25
8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. EST

What a great success! Level Up! with Skills Canada was our first interactive virtual event. Over 2,400 visitors from across Canada signed in to the vFairs platform on the day of the event to engage with sponsors and Skills Canada Member Organizations. The scavenger hunt and Trivia Challenge was a huge incentive for students to participate and learn about skilled trade and technology occupations.

During Level Up! we hosted two live sessions: the Skills Canada National Board of Directors and SCC’s Partners Roundtable and the Essential Skills Accessibility and Inclusion Session. The Essential Skills session and other Level Up! sessions are still available for viewing in the platform auditorium. The Level Up! with Skills Canada platform will stay live for three months.
