National Competitions

Started in 1994, the Skills Canada National Competition (SCNC) remains the only event of its kind in Canada. It is the only national, Olympic-style, multi-trade and technology competition for young students and apprentices in the country. Each year, Team PEI is comprised of gold medalists from the provincial competitions.




These Island youth move on to represent their province at the national level. The event brings together approximately 500 young people from all regions of Canada, along with their parents and advisors, to compete in over 40 trade and technology areas.





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. Students vie to win the honour of being crowned the best in their chosen discipline. For more information about the Skills Canada National Competition click here
