Fairview Welcomes the Region
For over 16 years, the Fairview Campus of Northwestern Polytechnic has hosted the Northwest Regional Skills Canada Competition, a Team Alberta qualifying round in the Skills Canada Competition. NWP is proud to support Skills Canada to promote careers in the skilled trades and technologies to Alberta youth through this competition.
The Peace Country has produced many skilled workers, and this competition has exposed young people to the trades, giving them hands-on experience in several areas. In 2018, Jason Cote from Peace Wapiti Academy competed in the Outdoor Power and Recreation Equipment competition and won gold at the provincial and national levels.
Our community welcomes competitors from across the Peace Country, and we are proud of their achievements. With 12 competitions taking place this year, NWP Fairview plays an essential role by providing a suitable venue, volunteers, and experts in trades and technology to chair and judge various competitions. Along with St. Thomas More School, and Fairview High School, NWP is hosting several competitions, including welding, carpentry, auto, video production, photography, robotics, and workplace safety competitions.
