The students who earned gold honours will take part in the provincial competition in Abbotsford in April.

More than 600 students from both secondary and post-secondary schools are expected to attend that event on April 15 at the Tradex.

“These competitions serve two main purposes. First, they celebrate and reward students for excellence in their mastery of a skilled trade or technology sector in a timely manner that directly involves industry and labour who assist in evaluating student performance.” said John Haller, president of Skills Canada BC. “Second, Skills Canada BC competitions create interactive and engaging environments to expose tens of thousands of young people to potential skilled trade and technology careers who annually attend the competitions as spectators.”
