Nova Scotia Apprenticeship Agency

The Month of May is always a time for change, with new adventures and new events waiting for us just outside the door. The weather is finally turning, and now is the time to plan ahead to enjoy the best parts of our East Coast spring. This May will be no different!

This spring the Nova Scotia Apprenticeship Agency is partnering with Labour and Advanced Education as one of the host sponsors of the Halifax Chamber of Commerce’s 2019 Spring Dinner. This event takes place at the Halifax Convention Centre and will highlight Work Integrated Learning as a way of developing talent in Nova Scotia. Apprenticeship is exemplary in combining learning on the job with technical training that takes place off the job and provides our youth with opportunities to work and live in Nova Scotia. Reserve your seat today to attend this great networking event and come visit the NSAA at our booth.

Also in May, we are excited to invite you to come and celebrate the 25th Skills Canada National Competition in Halifax, on May 28th and 29th! The Skills Canada National Competition is the only national, multi-trade and technology competition for students and apprentices in the country. The last time the event was in Halifax was in 2006, so we have a great opportunity to show off how much we have grown!!

Each year, more than 550 competitors from all regions of Canada participate in over 40 skilled trade and technology competitions. The competition area takes up over 300 000 sq ft in space and will draw approximately 4000 folks from across Canada as well as an additional 8000 from across Nova Scotia

By providing a forum where Canadians can compete at the national level, the national competitions provide hands-on work experience related to skilled trade and technology careers.
