What is the Territorial Skills Competition?

Annually we host the Yukon Territorial Skills Competition and qualifiers, bringing together Yukon’s students and apprentices to compete in diverse trade and technology areas. Winners are paired with mentors in their trade in order to master their craft and compete at national and international levels. There are up to 25 unique competition areas for you to choose from. Check out our Territorials page to learn more!
