Edmonton, AB (May 31, 2018) – PCL Construction is proud to be a supporter of the Skills Canada Alberta Competition at the Edmonton EXPO Centre May 31 – June 1 and an official sponsor of the Skills Canada National Competition at the Edmonton EXPO Centre June 4 – 5.

 

PCL representatives will be at both events to inform Canada’s brightest young tradespeople about how they can pursue a career in construction and to introduce them to the PCL family of companies.

Students at both the Skills Canada Alberta Competition and the Skills Canada National Competition will be able to test their skills at PCL’s Try-A-Trade booths. A crane simulator, electrical challenge, and Jenga game will encourage students to use important coordination, problem-solving, and building skills that are integral to a career in the construction industry.

PCL contributes $7,500 annually to the Skills Canada Alberta Provincial Competition and $15,000 to the Skills Canada National Competition. PCL’s five-year involvement with Skills Canada encourages youth to discover rewarding careers and supports the future of the skilled trades and technology industries.
