Sask Polytech students win big at Skills Canada provincial and national competitions

13 students compete at the national level, five receive gold, and one receives silver 


In April, Saskatchewan Polytechnic students representing a variety of programs participated in the provincial Skills Canada competition — an Olympic-style competition that celebrates student skills in more than 30 trade and technology areas.

This year, 13 Sask Polytech students advanced to the national event where they competed against students from across the country. The following Sask Polytech students were part of Team Sask, competing at the 25th Skills Canada National Competition held in Halifax, Nova Scotia in late May. Each year, more than 550 competitors from all regions of Canada come to SCNC to participate in over 40 skilled trade and technology competitions.

Congrats to our Sask Polytech students on their great placements!

“We are extremely proud of our students’ achievements in the 2019 provincial and national Skills Canada competitions. Because of superb training and preparation by our excellent faculty and staff, Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s students have an outstanding track record at these Skills Canada events,” says Dr. Larry Rosia, Sask Polytech president and CEO. “Congratulations to all of our students on Team Saskatchewan that competed at the Skills Canada National Competition, you make Sask Polytech and your province proud.”

“Team Saskatchewan always performs extremely well against other provinces and territories at the national skills competitions. This is because of the skill, ingenuity and drive our young people possess,” says Colin Phippard, Skills Canada Saskatchewan executive director. “Our institutions provide world class training and our industries provide invaluable experience. This year was no different, we brought home some gold and showed the rest of the country what Saskatchewan’s future workforce is made of.”
