The event inspires and celebrates the entrepreneurial action of student teams and student entrepreneurs across Central Canada.

“Enactus Canada is proud of the thousands of socially responsible young Canadians who are choosing to make a real difference in the communities in which they live,” says Enactus Canada president, Nicole Almond. “This regional gathering of high impact, values-driven student and business leaders provides an ideal opportunity to showcase the incredible impact these students are making in individual lives through their community projects and business ventures.”

During the event, post-secondary students will compete for prestigious regional championship titles by showcasing their community outreach projects and business ventures to judging panels composed of business professionals.
