Here are the 2020 winners of the ARISTA Provincial Contest!
The Gala of the 43rd edition of the prestigious ARISTA Provincial Contest, presented by BMO Financial Group, was held yesterday (October 21) in a virtual format. The JCCM would like to thank its MC, host Nicolas Ouellet, and the band Clay & Friends, who brilliantly led this reinvented edition. The JCCM also thanks all the partners involved who, despite the more complex context, supported us so that we could showcase the inspiring leaders of our community.
It was an opportunity to discover extraordinary local talent and to witness the commitment we made to recognize socially responsible leaders by applying progressive criteria to all categories. See for yourselves the excellence of the great winners of the ARISTA 2020 Gala!

Social responsibility: an example to follow
In addition to rewarding and showcasing promising Quebec business leaders for their leadership and sense of innovation, the 2020 edition of the ARISTA Provincial Contest now incorporates new, more responsible selection criteria to further highlight community involvement, respect for the environment, and the diversity and richness of the profiles submitted. The JCCM was accompanied by the Honorary President of the ARISTA 2020 Competition, Caroline Ménard, President of Brio Conseils, in this transformation of the criteria. Thanks to these efforts and those of the JCCM's volunteer teams, more than 400 applications were received for this year's competition.
"Since we are the voice of young business leaders, we need to be the bearers of a forward-looking message. The winners were chosen based on their commitment to social responsibility, inclusiveness and diversity. The JCCM is a pioneer in revealing socially responsible talents who will in turn become role models for the next generation of business leaders. »
