National Skilled Trade & Technology Week

Skills Canada NL

National Skilled Trades and Technology Week is a key date in the annual Skills Canada calendar.   

The goal of this week-long event is to promote and host awareness raising events around the many career opportunities in skilled trades and technology in Canada. During this celebration, Skills Canada organizations from across Canada host a variety of events and activities to promote skilled careers to youth, parents, educators and general public.

It is clear that skilled and technology careers are important for our economy and an excellent career path for many young Canadians, yet many Canadians do not know what skilled careers look like or what they entail. It is the goal of Skills Canada to work with it's member organizations and partners to facilitate and host skilled trades and technology activities in regions across Canada while engaging business and political leavers in discussions regarding the importance of skilled careers in our country.
