Partnership Opportunities

The success of our many events and our effective promotion of careers in skilled trades and technology depends on the support of our private/public sector partners. Skills/Compétences Canada offers partnership opportunities in conjunction with our key programs including :

Skills Canada National Competition (SCNC)

The 24th Skills Canada National Competition
Edmonton Expo Centre

Edmonton’s contemporary landmarks include the Royal Alberta Museum, with aboriginal-culture and natural-history galleries, and the futuristic-looking Art Gallery of Alberta, known for its First Nations art.
Points of interest include the West Edmonton Mall, Fort Edmonton Park, and the Edmonton Valley Zoo.
