Skills Ontario Competition - Post Secondary

The 2022 Skills Ontario Competition will be tentatively held in person for contests on May 2 and 3, 2022, subject to change depending on health and safety guidelines issued by the Government of Ontario.

The Skills Ontario Competition offers a unique opportunity for top students to demonstrate that they are the best in their field. Over three days, student competitors impress their educators, family, friends, and prospective employers. Winners are awarded with Gold, Silver, or Bronze medals and the opportunity to compete at the Skills Canada National Competition. From there, competitors could be headed to the WorldSkills Competition. Some medalists receive monetary awards as well. 

In addition to contests, the Skills Ontario Competition has a number of components, including:

Career Exploration Showcase

The Showcase is an interactive career fair in the heart of the competition. Over 70 businesses, colleges, apprenticeship programs, unions, and government programs set up booths and provide activites related to the skilled trades and technologies.

Closing Ceremony

Results for the Skills Ontario Competition will be announced during the Closing Ceremony held at the Toronto Congress Centre.  Competition results will not be made public until after the Closing Ceremony, so this is a prime opportunity for competitors to come and accept their medals.  Competitors advancing to the Skills Canada National Competition will be asked to attend the Team Ontario meeting immediately following the Closing Ceremony.  Click HERE for more information on the Closing Ceremony.
