Regional Competitions are an incredible introductory opportunity for high school students looking to test their skills and to qualify for a spot at the Provincial Skills Competitions. In 2020, Skills Canada New Brunswick ran its first-ever regional skills competition at NBCC Woodstock. 


They are hosted in various regions across the province and are an excellent way to engage students in the competition process and to learn about programs that exist in skilled trades and technology!


Registration for the 2023 Regional Skills Competitions will open in December 2022.
