Seven hundred of the best and brightest undergraduate business students from 14 universities dominated Toronto in January. JDC Central, the flagship competition of the Canadian Association of Business had students going head to head in front of industry professionals at its seventh annual edition, which ran from Friday, January 8 to Sunday, January 10, 2016.

Proudly presented by premier sponsor Scotiabank, JDC Central is among Canada’s largest undergraduate business school competitions, bringing together over 700 delegates from Canadian business schools in Ontario, Québec and the Maritimes. Delegates represent their schools through a varied mix of academic, debate, sports, and charity competitions. Schools compete for the much-sought ‘School of the Year’ and ‘Academic Cup’ awards. Each year, universities seek to showcase their well-rounded students, and their particular strengths in academics.

“We were excited to be bringing JDC Central to Toronto for a second consecutive year,” said Calvin Parker, President of the Canadian Association of Business Students. “It was an incredibly fun, competitive and trying three days, where hundreds of business students, corporate partners, academics and student leaders came together.”

Scotiabank has been a sponsor of JDC Central since its first edition in 2010. In August 2014, Scotiabank and the Canadian Association of Business Students announced a three-year partnership, which includes Scotiabank’s ongoing support as premier title partner of JDC Central.

“Young people are our future leaders, which is why Scotiabank is proud to once again support JDC Central and talented business students from central and eastern Canada,” said Rob Mattacott, District Vice President of Toronto Centre at Scotiabank. “Good luck to all the teams, we look forward to seeing firsthand how innovative and talented you all are.”

Featured guests included Toronto City Councillor, Norm Kelly, as well as Matt Giunta and Nick Foti, former competitors from The Amazing Race Canada.
