Economic Action Plan 2012 supports youth on their path to successful employment: Skills Canada has received over $8 million from Human Resources and Skills Development Canada to promote careers in the skilled trades and technology and to provide hands-on experience to Canadian youth.
The annual Skills Canada National Competition (SCNC) brings together young Canadians studying a skilled trade or technology to compete against exacting standards and against their peers from across the nation.
At the 2012 competition in Edmonton, grade 12 students Stephanie Stanov and Blake Hannahson took home the gold in the TV and video production category. Their video speaks volumes about what can be achieved through this world class competition. Watch it now!
“We had a day and a half to plan, film and edit the video. We could only use one camera, one lens, a tripod, and our own two hands.”

By continuing to invest in the training, Economic Action Plan 2012 encourages Canada’s next generation to succeed in the skilled trades and technology industries.
