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!
