Mike Holmes, Skills Canada and Canada's Economic Action Plan

For several years now, Mike Holmes has been an official spokesperson for Skills Canada. Skills Canada is part of WorldSkills International, a world-wide body which promotes vocational education and training to individuals in their perspective countries. Every other year, WorldSkills (formerly known as the "Skill Olympics") holds a competition in which the best and brightest young tradesmen and women gather to showcase their skills in various trades. As the self proclaimed mascot for Team Canada, Mike Holmes is proud to promote the skilled trades to Canada's youth, and has said in the past that he would like to see the WorldSkills competition gain Olympic-like status amongst spectators around the globe.

Today, Canada's Economic Action Plan put out a video featuring Mike Holmes talking about Skills Canada and how it entices young Canadians to enter the trades.

And just for kicks, here's the video in French:
