2020/2021 Opportunities

Please note: Due to COVID-19 our programming and volunteer needs look a little different this year as most of our programming has shifted online. We are still looking for new Provincial Technical Committee members. We hope to have you join us in 2021. 

Provincial Skills Canada Competition

Each year we host the Regional and Provincial Skills Canada Competitions with the support of hundreds of volunteers. These volunteers serve a critical role in the execution of our programs; from setting-up the event, registering competitors, to being a part of a specialized technical committee that plans everything from projects and judging, sourcing equipment, etc.

Volunteers have an opportunity to help out in a number of ways - from helping out in the Learn-A-Skill stations (Cabinet Making, Carpentry, Fashion Technology, Welding, Sheet Metal, Graphic Design, Electrical Installations, and Plumbing), to more general volunteer work like making sure that students don’t chop off their fingers with x-acto knives.  Individual and group volunteers are welcome and no previous experience is needed.
