Primed and Ready: Skills Canada National Competition set-up complete; competition to begin Thursday morning

Quebec City, Quebec — Young autobody repair and car painting professionals will compete on the national stage today and tomorrow, as Skills Canada kicks off its National Competition (SCNC) in Quebec City.

SCNC is the only national, multi-trade and technology competition for students and apprentices in the nation. Each year, more than 500 of Canada’s best in skilled trades and technologies come to SCNC to compete in over 40 skilled trade and technology competitions.

It’s more than the competition, though. Each year, thousands of students visit the competition floor and discover the exciting and rewarding careers that are available in the skilled trades and technologies through over 50 interactive Try-A-Trade and Technology activities, by visiting exhibitor booths and engaging with industry professionals.

Skills Canada veteran and former Toronto District School Board autobody teacher Bill Speed is on-site at the event. He told Collision Repair that setup was completed Tuesday, with the exception of “a couple items.”

“We’ll see the students compete beginning Thursday morning through Friday,” he added.

During the event, car painting contestants could be asked to perform a range of skills from cleaning and prepping panels; mixing and applying coatings; refinishing various substrates; performing minor damage repairs; preparing and refinishing full panels; colouring tint to blendable matches and more. 

Autobody competitors could face tasks like removing damaged panels; measurements; marking cutlines and producing cuts; damage analysis; welding techniques; hammering techniques; installing replacement panels or adjusting equipment settings.  

Winning results should be revealed before the weekend.
