DECA (Developing Excellence Celebrating Achievement) is an internationally recognized organization which provides students with an opportunity to showcase their business knowledge and presentation skills. It is Canada's largest youth business organization, with over 8000 members attending over 200 secondary schools. Members compete at Regionals, Provincials, and Internationals in a business case study competition, for awards and scholarships.
