Students must compete at local, regional and provincial/territorial events in order to represent their province or territory at SCNC.
SCNC is open to the public on competition days. It will offer 50 Try-A-Trade and Technology activities for visiting youth, a “Career Zone” and an essential skills forum.
The opening and closing ceremonies promise a crowd of 2,000. Interactive demonstrations by various stakeholder groups and celebrities will be held on the Essential Skills Stage. www.skillscompetencescanada.com
