Skills Canada 2019 Continued

At Skills Canada, in the quadrangle of ‘Creation Mode’, there was a space reserved for another competition, that of the ‘World of Trades’. Two young people qualified for the 2018 “Olympics”. The competition starts and the teachers and coaches encourage their students.  


British Columbia and Québec.


The last instructions and then the departure signal.

At this level, students have to surpass their own standards. Everyone was making a project that was very elaborate: a coat lined with a fabric that was 100% high quality wool. The competitors had sixteen (16) hours spread over two days, to design the pattern and make the coat.


And here are the young people in action.

Who will win the gold medal?  Both coats are Superb, but we need a winner… judges?
