“The students on Team ACC were very dedicated and worked hard in each of their competitions,” said Julie Ramos, coordinator for Team ACC. “This was their first experience competing at Skills Canada and most didn’t realize the magnitude of this event, but they all competed at their highest level and represented our college with pride.”

Since 2005, ACC has brought home two gold, eight silver and nine bronze medals from Skills Canada.

Skills Canada is a national competition that brings together more than 550 students and apprentices annually to compete in over 40 skilled trade and technology competitions. This year’s competition took place in Toronto from June 4-7.
