Territorial Skills Competition (TSC)

The Territorial Skills Competition (TSC) is a one-day event that highlights trades and technology careers for students, parents, educators, and the general public. It offers a venue for young northerners to showcase their skills in an Olympic-style skills competition. Secondary, post secondary, and apprenticeship students participate in approximately 20 contests designed to test the skills required in various trade and technology occupations.

The philosophy behind the Competition is to:
•    reward students for excellence;
•    raise awareness of the importance and value of skilled trades and technology careers;
•    directly involve industry in evaluating student performance; and
•    keep training relevant to employers’ needs.

Gold medalists may be eligible to join Team NWT to compete against their peers at the Skills Canada National Competition which is hosted in a different Canadian city each year.

In addition to providing youth with a chance to show what they can do, the TSC is a place where people can learn more about careers in skilled trades and technology. An annual Career Expo sponsored by the Department of Education, Culture, and Employment - North Slave Region attracts hundreds of students from NWT schools as well as many exciting exhibitors and employers. How is that for an interactive career exploration!

The success of the Territorial Skills Competition is made possible by the commitment and enthusiasm of industry, labour, education and the community and their generous support through participation as sponsors, Technical Chairs, judges, committee members and other volunteers.
