Since 1994 Skills Canada British Columbia (SkillsBC) has operated as a provincial not for profit/charitable organization, working with industry, educators, government and labour to promote rewarding and in-demand skilled trade & technology careers to BC’s youth.
Widely recognized for its annual 14 Olympic–style competitions hosted in communities throughout BC, Skills BC has provided tens of thousands of students with opportunities to explore skilled trades and technology careers for the past 22 years.
Our unique programming allows Skills BC to position itself as an early influencer; offering youth in grades K – 12 and in post secondary, safe and engaging environments in which to explore trade & technology careers. This programming also provides our partners with the opportunity to directly network and reach approximately 30,000 students in communities across the province each year.
Our Mission and Vision
Be the catalyst that creates and fosters connections within communities facilitating exposure to trades, technology, and career opportunities for youth.
Today’s youth become tomorrow’s skilled trades and technology leaders.
