Competing /




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. In response to COVID-19, this years' regionals have been cancelled, however plans for 2022 are still ongoing.  


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 2022 Regional Skills Competitions will open in December 2021.



Annual Provincial Skills Competitions take place in each province and territory every spring. These competitions are coordinated and implemented by Provincial Technical Committees (PTCs).


Provincial Competitions are 1-day events and offered at the Secondary and Post-Secondary/ Apprenticeship level.  Gold medal winners at the Provincial level may qualify to represent the province at the Skills Canada National Competition!
