Skills Manitoba Competition

The highlight of Skills Canada Manitoba is our Skills Competition. Students participate in challenges designed to test skills required in trades and technology careers. The philosophy of the Skills Competition is to reward students for excellence, directly involve industry in evaluating student performance, and keep training programs relevant to employers’ needs.

Winners of the provincial competition may form Team Manitoba and compete against their peers at the Skills Canada National Competition.

Over 475 high school, post secondary and apprentice students compete in 42 skilled trades and technology contests in six industry sectors.

Over 500 volunteers contribute their time and energy to this event.

Scope documents are devised by provincial technical committees which are made up of industry professionals and educators. The scopes outline the nature of each contest and the areas of knowledge to be tested. Each scope is specific to the competition.

The 20th Annual Skills Manitoba Competition will be held at Red River College (Notre Dame and The Roblin Centre campuses), April 13, 2017.

Skills Canada National Competition

Winnipeg, Manitoba  will be hosting Canada’s most talented trades people and technologists at the 23rd Skills Canada National Competition, May 31 – June 3, 2017! This exciting one of a kind event offers young students and apprentices from across Canada the opportunity to take part in an Olympic-style events competition that features over 40 contests in a diverse range of skilled trades and technologies such as: aircraft maintenance, carpentry, restaurant service and website development.

The National event will bring together over 1800 visitors from across Canada, including competitors, parents, advisors, judges, students, teachers and media. The competition provides an opportunity for young Canadians studying a skilled trade or technology to be tested against exacting standards and against their peers from across the nation.

Participating students will have qualified to compete at the Skills Canada National Competition by earning a gold medal in their respective provincial/territorial competitions. Select medalists from the Skills Canada National Competition may then form Team Canada and travel to the World Skills Competition. Offered every other year, the World Skills Competition is a prestigious event involving more than 48 countries and over 1,000 students. This professional, once-in-a-lifetime event is an amazing experience for students involved.

The main goal of this event and Skills programming throughout the year across Canada is to deliver hands-on opportunities to explore these careers and to raise awareness for the general population for the value of skilled trades and technology occupations.

Through industry, government, labour, education and a terrific network of volunteers, the Skills Competitions prepare students for the realities of the working world and instills a “quality attitude towards work and pride in what they do.” Through recognition, students feel good about their future and become active participants in our country’s development and competitiveness.
