About Skills Canada (SCA):

Skills Canada Alberta (SCA) was established in 1992 and it is a not-for-profit provincial association, which serves as a critical link between employers, educators, labour groups and the government to reposition trade and technical careers as a first choice career option for youth in Alberta.

SCA's goals are:

  • To improve the public perception of the importance of trade and technology-based careers.
  • To promote the career path opportunities within trades and technologies.
  • To enhance the quality of technological education.
