Established by PwC in collaboration with BCF Business Law, the Business Development Bank of Canada, the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec, HEC Montréal, the National Bank, Toast Studio and La Presse +, the Business Transfer Awards celebrate the achievements of Quebec businesses that have successfully gone through the succession process and that have thereby ensured their long-term sustainability. This year, the Awards features two different succession categories: family transfers and entrepreneurial transfers.

The Family transfer category highlights private Quebec businesses whose owners have successfully handed over their companies to at least one family member. The Entrepreneurial transfer category highlights private Quebec businesses whose owners have successfully handed over their companies to at least one entrepreneurial successor.
