A team of 45 undergraduate students, under the supervision of Linda Stockton, competed at the Jeux Du Commerce (JDC) Central Competition which was held from January 29 to February 1, 2015 in Toronto.

The DeGroote team consisted of eight academic teams, one debate team, one social team and one sports team. Fourteen schools competed in the Central Region of the JDC. The students have been training hard since the beginning of the school year and brought home five trophies.
