SAGE Canada National Competition

This year marks the third annual SAGE Canada National Competition!

At the SAGE Canada National Competition, expect to witness the results and impacts of SAGE teams across! Included are key note speakers of entrepreneurs today, sharing their journey and stories of their success and failures. This is the capstone of the year for SAGE teams, where they are given the opportunity to formulate a 13 minute presentation on their hard work and achievements infront of a panel of industry experts.

There are many awards to be won! Teams here are competing for the title of:

  • SAGE Canada Social Responsible Business National Champion
  • SAGE Canada Social Responsible Business National Runner Up
  • SAGE Canada Social Enterprise Business National Champion
  • SAGE Canada Social Enterprise Business National Runner Up
  • SAGE Canada’s Best Start Up
  • SAGE Canada’s Spirit Award
  • SAGE Canada’s Teacher Advisor of the Year
  • Andrea Belvedere presents Student Leader of the Year


Students are evaluated based on the SAGE Canada criteria. This criteria is made to help guide and focus teams to be thinking more entrepreneurially.

Participating students will begin to be more alert on opportunities that surround them every day.

Ignite sparks of ideas of how to apply their business knowledge to impact communities here and around the world.

There are two main topics that teams can focus individually on or tackle all together.

The first being how to run a Social Responsible Business. This incorporates how teams spotted an economical opportunity, created a venture and incorporated responsible business values in their operations.

The second is creating a Social Enterprise. This topic focuses on having teams creating a venture that creates a solution to a social issue, but is self-sustaining.

The winning team goes on to represent Canada at the SAGE Global World Cup to compete against the top SAGE teams around the world!
