From June 4th – 7th, the International Centre in Mississauga will be home to the largest national skilled trades and technologies competition in Canada.
Snap-on Tools has been a sponsor and supplier to the Skills movement in Canada for 25 years since the very first event at Hamilton’s Mohawk College in 1989. Our products will be utilized in the Auto Service and Outdoor Powered Equipment competition areas.
Winners will have the opportunity to represent Canada at the 2015 World Skills Competition in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
The Skills Canada National Competition (SCNC) is the only national, multi-trade and technology competition for students and apprentices in the country.
Every year, more than 550 young people from all regions of Canada come to SCNC to participate in over 40 skilled trade and technology contests. Skills/Compétences Canada expects 15,000 people to visit the over 500,000 square feet of event space at SCNC 2014.
By providing a forum where Canadian youth can compete against each another at the national level, SCNC provides hands-on work experience related to skilled trades and technology careers.
Through these competitions, Skills/Compétences Canada also seeks to raise awareness about skilled trades and technology sectors to all Canadian youth and their influencers.
Admission to the Competition is free and it’s open to the general public.
