Regional Interviews

If selected as semi-finalists, sponsored candidates are invited to participate in interviews in their region or province. These interviews are an opportunity for semi-finalists to connect with one another, meet the local leaders who serve as our regional interviewers and gain valuable interview experience.

After regional interviews, our committees invite 60-75 outstanding semi-finalists to attend national selections in Toronto in February. Our committees also grant provincial awards and honour citations to semi-finalists who distinguish themselves at the regional level.
