Turning the spotlight on excellence

To qualify as a Canadian Dealmaker:

  1. The acquirer must be a Canadian headquartered corporation or fund (except for foreign inbound Awards).
  2. The deal must have closed or be expected to close in the 2017 calendar year. At the discretion of the judges, there may be an exception made for a deal announced in 2016 or 2017 that has a high probability of closing in early 2018 (with the exception of the Value Creation Award which recognizes deal activity from/since 2013).
