Provincial and Territorial Competitions
Skills/Compétences Canada and its Member Organizations in each of the 13 provinces and territories work with employers, educators, labour groups and governments to promote skilled trade and technology careers to Canadian youth. This is done through a variety of programming and competitions each year, all with the goal of providing hands on, informative, interesting and educational information to youth. Please connect directly with your Provincial or Territorial Member Organization for more information about competitions.

About the competition:
Every year, the event brings together approximately 700 young people from across the province to compete in 45 trade and technology areas. The competition provides an opportunity for young Albertans studying a skilled trade or technology to be tested against exacting standards and against their peers. Students vie to win the honour of being crowned best in province in their chosen discipline, and for the opportunity to join Team Alberta for the Skills Canada National Competition.
High school students begin their journey with Skills Canada Alberta either with either a Regional or Qualifying Skills Canada Competition, or through in-school selection for skill areas not offered in their region. Post-Secondary students apply to compete, with a reference from their technical institute.
