Scotiabank's Partnership with Enactus Canada
Annually, the Enactus Canada National Exposition brings together student, academic and industry leaders from across the country to celebrate the achievements of Canada's future leaders and entrepreneurs. In 2016, Enactus students ran 118 green projects that made a significant, positive impact on the environment, and improved the livelihoods of those in their community and beyond.

2016 Winners of the Scotiabank EcoLiving Green Challenge: Ryerson University
At the 2016 Enactus Canada National Exposition, Ryerson University was named Champions of the Scotiabank EcoLiving Green Challenge for their project Growing North.
Growing North Project
With their Growing North Project, the Enactus Ryerson students addressed food insecurity in Naujaat, Nunavut by building a geodesic greenhouse dome. Growing North allowed communities in Northern Canada to grow and harvest their own food, while providing opportunities for youth in the community. Enactus Ryerson educated 214 youth in the North on horticulture and entrepreneurship, while providing hands-on work experience in the greenhouse.
