The city’s G.S. Lakie Middle School is one of five schools across
Alberta being given hand tool and equipment grants by a major tool
As a contribution to their career and technology studies (CTS)
programs, Dewalt has partnered with Skills Canada Alberta to provide
each school with about $12,000 worth of tools and equipment used in
the recent provincial skills competition.

CTS program experience by learning specialized skills and techniques.
Adding the new equipment means the schools have the tools and
resources they need to help students make the link between the
classroom and a career in trades and technology.
