Volunteer of the Year

Skills Canada Alberta prides itself on the fact that volunteers are the core of our organization. Each year we host the Regional and Provincial Skills Canada Competitions with the support of hundreds of volunteers. 

Volunteering with Skills Canada Alberta is a one of a kind opportunity to become a part of a growing and supportive community. It is a great way to expand your skill set, meet people and have an unforgettable volunteer experience. We want you to be a part of our team!
