Mandate:

Skills Canada works to encourage and support a coordinated approach to promoting skilled trades and technologies to youth. The goals of Skills Canada NL are to raise awareness of skilled trades and technologies by bringing youth into a competitive spotlight; to improve competencies, self-esteem and the achievement level of individuals pursuing careers in the skilled trades and technologies; and to educate and encourage young Canadians to develop skills that address labour shortages and support Canada’s economic well-being. 

Target Population:

Young Canadians primarily, but also parents and educators.

Highlights of Programs/Services Offered:

  • Main Program: Competitions – regional, provincial, national and international trades technology competitions for junior high, high school and post-secondary / apprenticeship students 
  • Skilled Futures: The goal of the Skilled Futures program is to offer junior high and high school-aged students across the province the opportunity to engage in interactive skilled trade and technology workshops and virtual events. SCNL has expanded the Skilled Futures program to tackle many relevant career options for students and offers focused workshops for female students and inclusive events for co-ed students. 
  • In-school presentations outlining a wide array of career choices available to young Canadians. 
  • ENTER:preneur Program: Provides young tradespersons and technologists with the tools and knowledge to translate their skills into successful self-employment. This is accomplished by merging skilled trades and technology with professional business development in the form of interactive events for youth, instructors and education administration at the intermediate, secondary and post-secondary levels. Programs include Apprenticeship Conferences, Dragon Lairs, the Pitch Competitions and Educator Lunch and Learns
