We are a part of the national association, Skills Competences Canada, which has offices in each territory and province in Canada. Their missions is to encourage and support a coordinated Canadian approach to promoting skilled trades and technologies to youth. Winners from our Territorial Skills Competition go on to the Skills Canada National Competition, hosted by Skills Competences Canada.
Our mission is to promote trades and technology careers as a top choice option for Yukoners.
We engage with Yukoners across the territory through Skills Clubs, hands-on workshops, in-school presentations, and competitions. We showcase trades and technology training in exciting and creative ways, while supporting teachers and volunteers to offer content that engages and inspires students.
We work with mentors, coaches, and volunteers, partners in industry and education, and all levels of government to invest in Yukon’s next generation of skills tradespeople. We work together to connect Yukon youth with hands-on opportunities to explore meaningful and rewarding careers in skilled trades and technologies.
