 Your mission

Form or join a team of 2 to 5 people to create or develop a project that’s close to your heart. Your idea must be based on one of the four given themes and be designed to improve the automotive and housing insurance sector while also helping to make the world a better place!

During the second stage, the chosen teams will have an opportunity to take part in a webinar before receiving advice and support from a TD Insurance mentor to help them develop their project in as much detail as possible – the perfect way to make sure you’re giving your best!

To finish, the teams that are nominated for the final will be given pitch preparation training before being invited to the TD Insurance headquarters in Toronto to present their project in English to a prestigious jury of company managers and experts.

Create or join a team of 2-5 students. Firstly, each team needs to present their idea in around five slides (using the presentation template on the platform), describing their concept clearly. Teams can also submit any other documents illustrating their idea if they wish to do so.

Each team must then upload their application to their personal area before 23:59 (EST) on March 1st.

After the jury announces its verdict on  March 13, the teams behind the 25 selected projects will:

  • Use their coach's recommendations to improve their project (technical development and feasibility, cost estimates, video, prototyping, etc.).

  • Upload a video explaining their solution (up to 4 minutes long) to the platform.

  • Add up to 10 slides of additional information to their project (optional but strongly recommended).
