KODIAK and Skills Canada

The 2017 World Skills Competition in Abu Dhabi has wrapped up and our incredible Team Canada competitors have now returned home. To say that they competed hard and made us extremely proud would be an understatement. The World Skills competition showcases the talents of young skilled workers from countries all over the world and shines a light on the very essential trades and work that they do. The competition was stiff this year and our competitors really stepped up to the challenge to represent Canada admirably.

We know you will join us in congratulating all of these athletes, not only for their amazing performances at the competition, but also for the months of hard work that led up the main event. Kodiak is a proud supporter of the skilled trades in Canada and wishes all of our Team Canada competitors the best of luck in their chosen fields and careers.
