Celebrating Skilled Trades And Technology Week In Saskatchewan

Released on November 5, 2018

The Government of Saskatchewan has proclaimed November 4-10 as Skilled Trades and Technology Week in Saskatchewan to raise awareness of the career opportunities available in the skilled trades and technology sectors.  This week aligns with the National Skilled Trades and Technology Week celebrated across Canada.

“Careers in the skilled trades and technology sectors are rewarding and challenging,” Immigration and Career Training Minister Jeremy Harrison said.  “This week helps enhance understanding of the wide array of career options available, and is also a chance to acknowledge the important work performed by those employed in these fields.”

Schools are encouraged to celebrate the week by co-ordinating try-a-trade events and inviting speakers into their classrooms to discuss career opportunities.

“Careers in the skilled trades are great for people who like to work with their hands, think creatively and solve problems,” Skills Canada Saskatchewan Chair and Saskatchewan Apprenticeship and Trade Certification Commission (SATCC) Chief Operating Officer Loreena Spilsted said.  “These are first-choice careers that give people an opportunity to perform tangible, meaningful work.”

The proclamation of Skilled Trades and Technology Week in Saskatchewan is supported by the SATCC and Skills Canada Saskatchewan.  The SATCC administers the apprenticeship and trade certification system in the province.  There are more than 40 designated trades in Saskatchewan.

Skills Canada Saskatchewan is a not-for-profit provincial organization affiliated with the national body, Skills Compétences Canada.  Skills Canada Saskatchewan’s mission is to promote and engage youth in skilled trades and technologies.  Every spring, the organization hosts the Skills Canada Saskatchewan Provincial Competition.
