The JDC West 2023 Competition is situated on Treaty Six Territory: traditional lands of the Cree, Saulteaux, Dene, Stoney, Nakota, Dakota, and the homeland of the Métis Nation. We acknowledge the harms and mistakes that were and continued to be done towards Indigenous peoples and communities. As business professionals, we dedicate ourselves to learning and celebrating Indigenous history, culture, and achievements so that we can have a reaffirmed relationship with the Indigenous community through decolonization, reconciliation, and collaboration.

Host School

Welcome to the University of Saskatchewan, located on the banks of the South Saskatchewan River, we are known for being one of the most beautiful campuses in Canada. Over 100 years ago, the University of Saskatchewan gave out the first undergraduate accounting degree, making us one of Canada’s oldest business schools.

The University of Saskatchewan’s (USask) main campus is located in the vibrant city of Saskatoon on Treaty 6 territory and the traditional homeland of the Métis.
