Our story so far
Launched in 2014, The Great Canadian Sales Competition (GCSC) is now Canada's Biggest Student Competition. In 2017, the Competition attracted 2,187 students across the country, which represented a 140% increase in participation from 2016. We hired 150 student ambassadors which drove participation from 78 college and university campuses, 10 provinces and a wide array of programs. To-date more than 4,000 Canadian students have developed new skills, networked and learned from amazing business leaders and won great prizes. Coming this September, here's to the GCSC 2018!
