We are so excited to announce our team that will be representing Nunavut at the 25th annual Skills Canada National Competition in Halifax, Nova Scotia. This is Canada’s largest trades and technology event which will be attended by over 500 students, apprentices and industry leaders in trades and technologies from across Canada. There are over 40 competition areas for both high school and post-secondary level competitors. We couldn’t be prouder of our Nunavut students who have worked so hard this year in their various trades and will now have the opportunity to show their talents on the national stage.
