Skills/Competences Canada in conjunction with SkillsUSA have been granted the right to host the WorldSkills General Assembly in 2016. World Skills will take place in Niagara Falls.
Tim Lawrence, CEO of SkillsUSA co-presented the bid to host the meeting and had this to say about the plans for 2016, “SkillsUSA is extremely excited to be working in cooperation with Skills/Compétences Canada to bring the world to the 2016 meeting of WorldSkills General Assembly. Niagara Falls will offer Delegates a world class meeting venue, as well as an opportunity to tap into top industry, education and government leaders and experts from across North America.”
The last time that the Delegates of WorldSkills came to North America it was for the 40th WorldSkills Competition in Calgary, AB, in 2009.
