Third-year, Level B, welding student Ben Chenuz finished with a bronze at SkillsCanada, which was held the beginning of June in Winnipeg.
The podium finish puts Chenuz among the country’s best in his age group and could lead to a variety of career opportunities as a result.
SkillsCanada brings together the gold medalists from each province and territory to compete in a variety of trades and skills, where each person then has to complete a series of project within time limits.
Those winning gold at SkillsCanada then qualify for WorldSkills.
