The JA Northern Alberta Business Hall of Fame honours our region’s most esteemed business visionaries for their life achievements and service to our economy, our communities and the collective future of Albertans. It is the premier annual gathering of business and community leaders from every sector. This annual celebration is our signature fundraising event in support of Junior Achievement programs for young people.

 JA’s Business Hall of Fame has an incredible 41 year legacy.  JA’s proven excellence in delivering meaningful networking, the opportunity to learn something new, and inspiration for even the most experienced CEO’s make this event truly special. It is also provides inspiration for our Company Program students to learn and grow their skills by talking with you, and showcasing the small businesses and products they have created with JA.
