Benefits of participation

You could walk the yellow carpet.

In the fall, each region — Pacific, Prairies, Ontario, Quebec and Atlantic — hosts a gala awards banquet, where we honour each finalist and present the awards. The grand finale of the evening is the presentation of the region’s overall EY Entrepreneur Of The Year Award.

These events are always full of excitement and energy, with family, friends, employees and supporters of the nominees in attendance to cheer on their candidate and share in the pride of nomination and celebration.

The five regional winners then advance to the national ceremony to compete for the prestigious title of Canada’s EY Entrepreneur Of The Year. Canada’s winner finally goes on to compete with the national winners from more than 50 countries at the spectacular World Entrepreneur Of The Year Awards gala in Monte Carlo the following June.
