Our Events

Through our five flagship events, CABS offers the primary medium for business student collaboration across Canada. Our programming involves a combination of a leadership curriculum with moderated discussion, enabling the on-boarding of instrumental knowledge and rare insight to best prepare our members for success.

JDC Central (JDCC)

JDC Central (JDCC) is the largest undergraduate business school competition in Central Canada, which brings over 600 student delegates together from Ontario, Québec and the Maritimes. Lasting three days each Winter, JDCC is a multi-facet competition, including academic cases for 8 business disciplines, parliamentary style debates, sports tournaments, social competitions, and charity contributions.

 

Canadian Business School Conference (CBSC)

The Canadian Business School Conference (CBSC) is a national event that brings together members of Business Student Associations from across Canada to once again meet, collaborate and network. CBSC is an opportunity for our members to reconnect with like-minded individuals, to discuss challenges, and to build tool kits before they embark on the journey of leading their respective organizations.

 

Canadian Leadership Retreat (CLR)

CLR is an annual leadership development conference for business student leaders from the 26 member schools. CLR gives these delegates the opportunity to develop planning, implementation, and management skills that will improve their ability to perform as student leaders.

 

Roundtable Conference (RT)

CABS Roundtable is one of Canada’s largest and most prestigious student-run conferences, and the flagship event in the CABS conference circuit. An annual affair, it connects over 300 of the brightest student leaders from over 26 of the top business schools across the country. Every year since its inception in 2008, CABS Roundtable has been hosted in a different Canadian city.
