Skills Manitoba in partnership with our Northern Partners, is working to inform northerners about the skills that they need to fill jobs in the North.
Northern Manitoba Sector Council predicts that the north will need about 2,000 to 2,500 skilled young people ----for all industrial trades----during the next five years. There is a skilled labour shortage looming and unemployment crisis in the north.
Skills Manitoba understands that careers in skilled trades make a great first choice career choice. Our Northern programs will inform students on the hundreds of career opportunities available in the construction, industrial, transportation and technology sectors.
We are pleased to offer engaging, hands on learning opportunities to both middle school and high school students across Manitoba.
