4 1 Introduction 1.1 What is Skills/Compétences Canada? Skills/Compétences Canada is a not for profit corporation comprised of members from Canada s provinces and territories. The Organization consists of educators, students, employers, labour groups, and government representatives. Only one organization from each province or territory can be a member of Skills/Compétences Canada s National Secretariat which is located in the National Capital Region. Skills/Compétences Canada meets its objectives by sponsoring, with industry support, skills competitions on a Canada-wide basis. Working with hundreds of young Canadians each year, Skills/Compétences Canada has a direct impact on youth. The Skills Canada National Competition ensures recognition of students in search of excellence in fields required by the Canadian labour market, today and tomorrow. Skills/Compétences Canada is the owner and the co-ordinator for the Skills Canada National Competition. Skills/Compétences Canada also co-ordinates various activities to prepare Team Canada to participate in the WorldSkills International Competitions. The competition rules are maintained by the National Secretariat and approved by the Operations committee and Board members. All members and participants must abide by the competition rules. 1.2 National Board of Directors Skills/Compétences Canada has a board of directors with representatives from each member province/territory. The board is responsible for final decisions related to national competition operations. 1.3 Skills/Compétences Canada Operations Committee The Skills/Compétences Canada Operations Committee is comprised of Executive Directors from each Member Organization, or their respective agents, and the Executive Director of the Skills/Compétences Canada National Secretariat. 1.4 National Technical Committee (NTC) For every trade or technology contest there is a National Technical Committee. The National Technical Committee serves as an operational and advisory committee to the National Secretariat. The purpose of the committee is to formalize a competition development process, which will ensure a positive experience for competitors, instructors, judges and technical committee members. The Committee will provide each region of Canada a voice in the development of the Skills Canada National Competition criteria. This will ensure the standardization of the Skills Canada National Competition scopes, projects and judging criteria. The National Technical Committee members must be involved with their provincial or territorial competition.

5 Committee Composition: Membership: 6 members from 5 regions (Pacific, West, Ontario, Québec, Atlantic) and a shop master from the host provincial/territorial. It is strongly recommended that the Canadian Expert to the WorldSkills International organization automatically assumes their regional representatives position. If that is not possible, the expert will be invited to participate as an advisor to the National Technical Committee activities National Technical Committee Chairs For each contest there is a National Technical Committee Chair. The person who sits as Chair is responsible for organizing and running the contest, meetings, conference calls, and correspondence. The Chair must keep everyone informed of the on-going organizing activities of the contest, meeting deadlines, and ensuring that the contest is well organized and administered. The NTC Chair is elected by each National Technical Committee and is chosen from the members present during the fall National Technical Committee meeting (held the previous fall of the competition year). The term for this position is one competition year. The elected NTC Chair must be in attendance during the fall NTC meeting. NTC Chair responsibilities are in effect beginning immediately after the election, which is held on day 1 of the fall meeting. 2 The Competition 2.1 What and When? The Skills Canada National Competition (SCNC) is held annually, normally between the 21st and 23rd week of the year (approximately between May 15 and June 7). 2.2 List of Contests The list of contests held for the Skills Canada National Competition is drawn up in the following way: Terminology: The Skills Canada National Competition is a collection of contests in areas of skilled trades and technology organized by a host Member or Organizing Committee and by Skills/Compétences Canada Members participate in a contest area by declaring their intent to send an official competitor by a specified participation deadline. Declaring intent to send candidate(s) to a SCNC event establishes the fee obligation of the Member SCNC host and S/CC must organize contests on the SCNC core list of occupations established by Skills/Compétences Canada Participation fees, or obligation for participation fees will not be returned or the obligation reduced, if participation is withdrawn or defaulted after the participation deadline. Participation Deadline: October 1 of each year.

6 Official A host may choose not to organize a contest on the approved list only if there are less than five (5) members who have declared an intent to participate in the contest If only 3-4 competitors/teams are registered for a contest that has already received official status, the contest will be offered but will have probation status for one year. If after the year it does not reach the minimum of 5 registered member organizations it will be removed from the list The year following a contest being hosted as a probationary contest the SCNC host could submit a request to the National Secretariat asking to host the contest with a minimum of 3 participants. If there are 2 or less registered P/T s, then it will be removed from the list immediately. After one year of suspension the contest can be requested to be reinstated as a demonstration. Demonstration Skills/Compétences Canada will organize additional demonstration contests only if there are three (3) or more members who have declared interest in the contest area If the contest is presented as a demonstration contest and there are not enough participants (less than 3) then it is suspended for a year, A new contest will be on demonstration status for 2 years, the 3rd year it becomes official as long as the minimum number criteria is met (5 participating Member Organizations). If there are 2 or less registered Member Organizations, then it will be removed from the list immediately. After one year of suspension the contest can be requested to be reinstated as a demonstration. Presentation The Member hosting the Competition may, on its own merit, present other contests in order to promote those skills. Known as Presentation skills, they are not subject to Competition Rules and will not be officially assessed. Medals, medallions, diplomas or certificates of participation may be awarded at the discretion of the host organization but will not be included in the Skills/Compétences Canada official results or ceremonies. The host organization may invite other members to participate in the presentation. National Technical Committee s will not be convened for Presentation skills.

Projects should be based on a maximum of 12 hours of work time over two days. (not included orientation and/or evaluation) The content of a project must be significantly different for each competition year. The same project content can only be used every 3 years. Skills/Compétences Canada and the National Technical Committee will ensure this is followed. Project criteria: Projects must allow competitors to demonstrate their ability to accomplish tasks and use their corresponding skills at the entry-level worker position. As a guideline, a contest may include a practical project making up at least 85 % of points. It can also include a theoretical project that corresponds to a maximum 15 % of points. In the case of a written project, the Skills/Compétences Canada National Secretariat is responsible for ensuring that the projects are available in both English and French and marked equitably for all. Where possible, project evaluation criteria must be objective rather than subjective. 3.3 Judges The National Secretariat is responsible for co-ordinating contest evaluation.

As a first step, judges complete their individual evaluations. Then, the National Technical Committee will compile their results. NTC members will ensure there is no tie. NTC members will verify there are no errors in calculating results, or in transcriptions of the final results onto the Result Transmission Form. Once these have been verified, all NTC members sign the Result Form. No change is allowed once the form has been signed.

Candidates Not Reaching a Minimum Standard of Performance If, it is the opinion of the NTC for a contest area, that a competitor(s) has not performed at the minimum acceptable standard for the Skills Canada National Competition then the NTC, through the Chair, can recommend that one or more medals can be withheld. In these circumstances the NTC Chair shall report the potential withholding of medals to the Executive Director of the National Secretariat no later than two (2) hours before the closing ceremonies. The Executive Director or his/her appointee(s) will investigate with the NTC and Judges to ensure integrity and consistency of the contest areas. The National Secretariat will also advise the affected region of the request to withhold medals. A meeting will be convened of the affected parties (National Technical Committee, competitors, trainers, National Secretariat representatives) so that the rationale for the decision can be clearly communicated. The withholding of the medals will be recorded by the National Secretariat on a Results Transmission Form and signed as is normal practice.

15 If there is a dispute between the National Technical Committee and the National Secretariat as to the awarding of medals a minimum score of 60% must be achieved by the competitor or team in question Results During the awards ceremony, Skills/Compétences Canada announces only the name, the level, the Province/Territory and the medal awarded. Within one week after the Skills Canada National Competition, the National Secretariat will send to each Member Organization, the standings, marks and group average for all competitors. The name of the individual, province/territory and standings for the top three competitors for each trade or technology area will be compiled by the National Secretariat and be verified by an independent body and be made available for public distribution.
