So what happens at DECA?




Members compete at Regionals, Provincials, and Internationals in a business case study competition, for awards and scholarships. Employers, universities, and colleges alike recognize the achievements of DECA members.





Network with 8000+ elite business students across Ontario and 200,000+ around the world. This is your chance to make lasting connections, meeting co-founders, partners, and best friends.





DECA arms you with practical business knowledge and experience that prepare you for your future. No wonder DECA Ontario alumni are leaders at Canada’s top companies and startups.





DECA members travel around the world and never stop having fun. This is not your average classroom environment. You get encouraged to go on social media, talk with friends, and scream your head off.


By creating partnerships between business and education, DECA Ontario is a nonprofit organization that provides real-world experiences in the fields of marketing, business, law, and entrepreneurship to develop high school students into character-driven leaders who will enrich our corporations and communities.

Established in 1979, DECA Ontario creates unique and relevant marketing and leadership opportunities for all high school students to succeed in school, career, and life. All that we do is governed by our unrelenting commitment to integrity, leadership, development, and success.

By giving students hands-on experience in the fields of marketing, business, and entrepreneurship, DECA Ontario teaches leadership characteristics that mold high school students into character-driven leaders.
