Who We Are

Skills Council of Canada

Skills Council of Canada (SCC) is an Ottawa-based education technology organization that supports all Canadians in accessing skill-development resources and tools to become job ready. With a focus on the more vulnerable and underserved groups across Canada such as racialized youth, students, the underemployed, unemployed and their communities, SCC achieves its objectives through a collaborative partner network.

By working with industry leaders, SCC fosters opportunities for growth and employment through:
·       Access to learning facilities, resources, and people.
·       Online, self-paced, blended skills development assessments / courses.
·       Access to tutors, career coaches.
·       Connection to Work Integrated Learning (WIL)


We provide equitable access to inclusive, quality education and promote lifelong learning and employment opportunities for all.


We aspire to break down barriers to education and employment, bringing people together through the common goals of equality and inclusiveness.

Development Goals

“The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries - developed and developing - in a global partnership. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.”

Skills Council of Canada’s leadership has been focused on contributing to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals for many years. Education is the foundation that supports all SDGs and why we have made it the foundation of all our work.
