Try-A-Trade® and Try-A-Skill

Try-A-Trades® and Try-A-Skills are your way of engaging students, transporting them to your industry and inviting students to sample one, or a handful, of tangible skills safely practiced in day-to-day on the job activities.

Try-A-Trade® and Try-A-Skill activities open minds, break barriers and demonstrate enthusiasm and professionalism that leave a lasting impression- fueling the desire for students to branch out and explore the endless opportunities that were once unknown. Try-A-Trades® and Try-A-Skills are located in or around the competition event areas specific to each industry represented.

Skills Canada Alberta (SCA) partners with dozens of industry, labour groups, associations and post-secondary institutions to host Try-A-Trades® and Try-A-Skills that give students a behind-the-scenes look at where their interests can take them.

Visit Skill City at the Provincial Skills Canada Competition to try our Try-A-Trades® and Try-A-Skills May 6-7, 2020 at the Edmonton EXPO Centre.  Free admission and parking.
