I am super excited to announce that QACE (Queens Advancing Canadian Entrepreneurship Conference) delegate apps are due tomorrow, with our conference being held on the weekend of November 17th-19th. This year we are really excited to have the CEO of Smokes Poutine as our keynote speaker, as well as our gold sponsor being EY and a sponsored event from Molson Coors.
