Skills Canada NWT COVID-19 Update

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is with a heavy heart that we announce the cancellation of all planned Skills Canada NWT programming for the Spring of 2020. This will include the Skills Canada NWT Territorial Competition, as well as all Career Expo/Try-A-Trade® events.

It has also recently been announced that the 2020 Skills Canada National Competition in Vancouver, British Columbia has been cancelled.

We understand the tremendous disappointment that this may bring to the many individuals, businesses and organizations that had planned on participating in these events. Nevertheless, our priority is to protect the health of all who would have been involved in hosting this event.

Skills Canada NWT will continue to work with our partners and stakeholders to find the best ways to continue to promote skilled trades and technology to youth in the Northwest Territories. Over the coming days and weeks, we will make informed decisions based on current public health recommendations and share any announcements regarding the immediate future of any affected programs and events. 

Regardless of the cancellation of these events, we will connect directly with our partners, sponsors and supporters as we endeavor to explore new ways of recognizing their generous support of our programs.

Please monitor our website, ‘skillscanadanwt.org’ and our social media channels to stay up-to-date on future announcements regarding any affected programs and events.

Stay safe.
