NOTICE OF CANCELLATION Skills Canada National Competition 2020

Please see below a message from Skills Canada:

It is with great regret that due to the uncertainty of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, we are announcing the cancellation of the Skills Canada National Competition 2020 that was scheduled from May 27 to 30 in Vancouver.

After much discussion with our Provincial/Territorial member organizations, stakeholders and taking guidance from our public health authorities, we felt it was prudent to cancel the event. The health and safety of our student participants, spectators, volunteers, partners and staff are paramount and we did not feel we could deliver an event that would meet the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) guidelines provided by Canada's public health authorities.

We look forward to working with our many partners and stakeholders to continue to offer activities in the future that inform Canadian youth about the many opportunities in skilled trades and technology careers.

Sincerely,

Shaun Thorson
Chief Executive Officer/Directeur général
