For one full weekend every April, Inuksuk High School is transformed into an Olympic-style trades and technology competition zone and career fair. Over 70 competitors, both secondary students and apprentices, from across the territory representing all three regions, showcase their talents for a spot to represent Team Nunavut at the Nationals Skills Competition. 

There will be 16+ trades and technology areas represented either in competition or interactive-demonstration. The competition weekend includes a Career Fair, Community Craft Sale and is free to the public. The Territorial Skills Competition is an excellent way for businesses, government sectors, and industry to network and connect with the community. The TSC is the best way to introduce Nunavut students and educators to the variety of skilled trades and technology opportunities and careers available.
