Are you an Entrepreneur Of The Year?

April 30 is the deadline to nominate your business for Ernst & Young's Entrepreneur Of The Year program. Now in its 17th year in Canada, E&Y's program ties into a global EoY framework, and it's probably the world’s most prestigious business award for entrepreneurs.

To nominate your organization or another one, check out You can download a brochure or nomination form, or submit info online.
You can also access the Frequently Asked Questions page here.

Nominations are by province or region (BC, Prairies, Ont., Quebec, Atlantic), and can include a variety of categories: by industry (BtoB, cleantech, health sciences, manufacturing, etc.) or specialty (Turnaround, Social Entrepreneur, Young Entrepreneur, etc.). If your business is doing outstanding things, they'll find a way to fit you in!

The judges are prominent business people, entrepreneurs and thought leaders from across each region. Winners are announced at gala banquets in the fall.

I served on the steering committee (and was a national judge) when EoY started years ago. It remains an exemplary awards program that has brought many benefits to nominees and winners alike. So go for it!
