"This year's winners prove that eBay is an ideal business partner for Canadian entrepreneurs regardless of their age or geographic location," says Andrew Sloss, Interim Country Manager, eBay Canada. "It's important for us to recognize these savvy business owners and their contribution to the Canadian economy by paying tribute to their innovation and competitive spirit."
