A BIT ABOUT US

SkillsCamp first launched in early 2016. Since then, we have grown to help organizations from all over the world build soft skills in their staff and students – skills like resilience, stress-management, unconscious bias, personal branding, and more.

 

Our clients include companies such as Deloitte, RBC, CIBC, PepsiCo, GM, and more. We’ve stayed strong with our education roots and have worked with every level of education from high schools around Ontario up to universities such as the University of Toronto, Ryerson University, UCLA, the University of Massachusetts, and many others. We’ve even partnered with government in the City of Toronto, the City of Brampton, the Bank of Canada, and Canada Public Safety. All along, it has been important that we also work with with non-profits, some as big as the Salvation Army and other more local affairs working to offer skills training to those that need it most, but may not have a company or school to cover it.
