Canadian Company of the Year Championship Finalists

July 17, 2023 National

Last week, JA Company Program teams from across Canada participated in the preliminary rounds of the Canadian Company of the Year Championship. They competed in one of the three categories: manufacturing & retail, technology and social venture.

These were closed sessions with a panel of judges. The students gave a 5-minute presentation about their business and experience throughout the JA Company Program followed by a Q&A session. Our judges had the very difficult task of selecting a top team in each category, as all the presentations were well done!

We're happy to announce the top team from each category is:

  • Manufacturing & Retail - Supernational Delights from JA South Western Ontario
  • Technology - Nyft-e from JA Central Ontario
  • Social Venture - Wonder from JA Central Ontario

These three teams make up the finalists for the championship event on July 20th. They'll each participate in a live virtual event where they'll do their presentation followed by a Q&A with another panel of judges. The event will also include a keynote speaker and insights from a JA Alumna as the emcee.

The winning team will be given the title of Company of the Year and will be nominated to represent Canada at the JA Americas' Company of the Year Competition in the late fall (more details to come).
