Skills/Compétences Canada recently announced that Canada’s top skilled trade and technology students, along with government representatives, industry leaders, trainers and educators, will gather in Toronto at the International Centre from June 4-7, 2014 for the 20th annual Skills Canada National Competition. The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP) and the United Association of Journeymen and Apprentices of the Plumbing and Pipefitting Industry (UA) have signed on as Presenting Sponsors.

The event attracts hundreds of students from all provinces and territories, and features at least 40 unique skilled trade competitions in the categories of Construction, Employment, Information & Technology, Manufacturing, Service, and Transportation. It is the only event of its kind where young Canadians studying a skilled trade or technology can be tested against exacting industry standards and vie for the honor of being named the best in their chosen discipline. Competitors will also be aiming for a coveted spot on WorldSkills Team Canada 2015, heading next to WorldSkills São Paolo 2015, in Brazil.
