Skills Ontario hosted the 2022 Virtual Skills Ontario Competition and Career Exploration Showcase recently. The event gave attendees the opportunity to explore skilled trades and technologies through networking and conferences.

The event included trade and tech contests, a virtual career showcase with Skills Ontario partners, a scavenger hunt with prizes and conferences for young women and Indigenous youth.

The event wrapped up with the closing ceremony announcing contest winners, messages from partners and announced gold medalists who advanced to the Skills Canada National Competition and will be competing for Team Ontario.


“Inspiring the next generation of skilled trade and technology leaders is crucial to our success as a province,” says Ian Howcroft, CEO, Skills Ontario. “Skilled trades and technologies play an imperative role in our lives and continuing to support these fields and the professionals working within them benefits us all. We are thrilled that the Competition & Showcase were such a success, and we aim to continue to provide opportunities for career exploration through every medium we can. Thank you to our partners for their generosity and support – we cannot have this impact without them.”
