April 11, 2013 – Over 475 youth from across Manitoba competed in more than 40 trade and technology fields at the Skills Manitoba Competition today.

“Skills competitions are an exceptional showcase for talented young competitors and will inspire other young people to explore careers in the trades, technologies and service industries,” said Dr. Kellie Leitch, parliamentary secretary to Diane Finley, minister of human resources and skills development (HRSDC).

Leitch highlighted the Government of Canada’s continued funding support of Skills/Compétences Canada (S/CC) and its provincial and territorial chapters, including an investment of over $221,000 to Skills Manitoba.
