Skills Ontario is an opportunity for high school and college students to compete against each other in a wide variety of skilled trades, professions, and occupations.
Last year, members of Team Sudbury earned 10 medals at Skills Ontario (4 gold, 2 silver, and 4 bronze).
In Greater Sudbury, we are very skilled at producing skilled students.
Team Sudbury would also like to thank its supporters for this year’s Skills Ontario competition: NetSpectrum.ca, Schneider Electric, and Infrastructure Health and Safety Association.
