Join DECA

Not just a business competition. DECA is a community akin to a second family who will push you to accomplish more than you thought you ever could. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for Ontario’s top high school students to compete regionally, provincially, and internationally in a business case study competition. You’ll create business presentations about marketing, finance, and entrepreneurship.

A Step-by-Step Guide

Step 1:

Find a teacher advisor to lead your chapter and initiate the registration process. All chapters experienced and new must start here each year. TEACHER'S ONLY are to complete step 1.

Don't see your school on the list? Your must be registered with DECA INC to join Ontario DECA!

Step 3:

Appoint an executive team to plan and lead the Chapter throughout the year. They will be your contacts for staying informed and training for competitions.

Does your student executive need some help starting things this year? Arrange for a Virtual Chapter Meeting with one of our Provincial Officers by completing the request form.

Your registration is not finalized, even if payment is received. Your Chapter Advisor must approve your application. Each school has various levels of commitment, student expectations, chapter size limits, etc. Failing to meet these requirements will mean that your application will not be honoured by DECA Ontario. If that is the case, and a payment was made, a full refund will be issued to the credit card holder.

NO cancellations, NO refunds, NO changes to membership after October 15.
