Over its 60 year history, WorldSkills International (formerly known as the "Skill Olympics") has come to symbolize the pinnacle of excellence in vocational training. Every two years, hundreds of young skilled people, accompanied by their teachers and trainers, gather together from around the world to compete before the public in the skills of their various trades and test themselves against demanding international standards. They represent the best of their peers drawn from regional and national skill competitions held currently in 52 countries/regions.

We are very proud that these five Ontario competitors on their way to Leipzig, Germany, having earned top rankings in their specialties at both the provincial (OTSC) and national (SCNC) levels. Skills Canada-Ontario is proud of these young competitors as they prepare to compete amongst their peers on the world stage. Congratulations from everyone at Skills Canada-Ontario!
