How the Winners Were Chosen
The EY Entrepreneur Of The Year is an annual global awards program administered by Ernst & Young (EY). Canada’s Pacific Region program is overseen by EY, which selects judges from among business leaders and past EOY winners. Judges evaluate the nominees based on several factors, including vision, leadership, innovation, financial performance and social responsibility. The Pacific Region overall winner is one of five regional winners who compete for Canada’s EY Entrepreneur Of The Year; the Canadian winner advances to an annual competition, held in Monte Carlo, that sees World Entrepreneur Of The Year chosen from among 60 country winners. Details of the nomination process and judging criteria are available at ey.com/ca/ EOY. Nominations are accepted year-round.
