The next generation of Canadian entrepreneurs will have a chance to present their ideas for an innovative, direct-to-consumer product; build their resumé; gain experience working as part of an entrepreneurial team; network with business leaders; and qualify for a chance to win cash and prizes by participating in the Canadian Academic Entrepreneur Challenge.
The Challenge, sponsored by the Direct Selling Education Foundation (DSEF), will have participants utilize business, creative and critical-thinking skills, says the program’s academic advisory Derek Hassay.
“Shared, real-world projects are incredibly important for all students during this ‘virtual’ period in our lives and this inclusive initiative can play a crucial role in fulfilling that need,” he said.
Challenge registration is now open and first round submissions are due by November 12, 2021.

More than a quarter (26%) of Canadians responded that they have been a victim of an email phishing scam, according to a survey prepared for the federal government.
Phishing scams can take several forms from emailing, texting, calling, or leaving a voicemail but all are trying to fool a victim to get their personal or corporate information. Hackers will use it to gain access to online accounts and more for fraudulent purposes.
“When you receive an unexpected call or email asking for personal or company information, you should think critically about the request,” says Kevin Macnaughton, team leader security in IT Services. “While the person may appear to be helpful or in need, often they’re trying to manipulate you and falling for it can cause significant monetary loss to you and the University.”
IT Services’ top five tips for spotting, and ultimately avoiding phishing are:
If you answer YES to any of the questions above, do not react to the message. Instead, if you think the message may be legitimate, contact the sender through a different communication channel to verify it. Otherwise, report the message or call to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the IT Service Desk at 519-253-3000 ext. 4440.
