Skills Canada

2004 Skills Alberta Poster

Skills Canada Alberta (SCA) was established in 1992, as an outgrowth of the Skills Canada program. The organization as a whole is dedicated to promoting youth interest in the trades, through a series of field-related competitions held each year.

Schools affiliated with the non-profit Skills Canada Alberta program are invited to apply and to submit the names of candidates capable of competing in the trade-based events. These activities include (but are not limited to) brick laying, sheet metal working, plumbing, aesthetics, baking, and architectural achievement.

Those fortunate competitors who win on the provincial level are then invited to compete nationally.

The Alberta competition is hosted in Edmonton at the Northlands AgriCom, as a skills trade show. In 2001, the national competition was held there as well.
