UWinnipeg JDC West


JDC West is the largest undergraduate business competition in Western Canada. This three-day event is held every January and is designed to challenge students to work towards becoming well-rounded business leaders. Twelve of Western Canada’s top universities from British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, combining for over 600 students, compete within four categories: Academic, Debate, Athletics and Social. ThIs year the competition is held at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, British Columbia.

The University of Winnipeg JDC West Team is able to provide the students enrolled in the Business and Administration Faculty with the chance to develop and apply their knowledge, experiences, and presentation abilities. The students selected are at the highest caliber of young business professionals that we are proud to say will be the business leaders of tomorrow. This program gives our students the ability to transform what they have learned in the classroom setting, and apply it to the real world. 

Last year in Calgary, we had tremendous success in the growth of our organization. Our Debate team was the first in UWinnipeg JDC West history to podium at first place. This followed by multiple teams finishing within the top 8.

We look forward to this years success in Burnaby, British Columbia, and the opportunities that we can provide the students as a result of this success.
