Sencia is helping to build a stronger, more prosperous future in Ontario.

The Ontario Global Traders Awards are coordinated by Ontario Exports Inc., the Government of Ontario's export development agency, with support from their partners in trade. "Ontario's international reputation continues to grow because our exporters are working hard to bring the most innovative products and services to the rest of the world," said Parliamentary Assistant Richard Patten, who presented the awards on behalf of Minister Cordiano. The awards recognize the most innovative and successful small and medium-sized exporters, business leaders and students throughout Ontario. Exports account for nearly 45 per cent of the province's GDP, and support up to one million jobs in Ontario.
At Sencia, we are proud to receive this recognition, and give many thanks to our long list of supportive clients, customers, partners and friends.
