National Business Book Award
Sponsorship overview
The National Business Book Award was founded nearly 35 years ago and has grown into the most respected business literary award in Canada. The $30,000 prize is award annually to the author of a Canadian business book selected by a jury chaired by Peter Mansbridge and includes David Denison, corporate director and former CEO, Senator Pamela Wallin, Leonard Waverman, Anna Porter, author and former publisher and Deirdre McMurdy business commentator and adjudicator.

Past winners are business leaders, academics and journalists such as Jim Leech (Chancellor Queen’s University) and Jacquie McNish (WSJ reporter and 3-time winner), Hon Chrystia Freeland, Daniel Levitan (Neuroscientist and professor) and Chris Turner (journalist) to name a few.

The 2019 winners are Chris Clearfield and András Tilcsik for Meltdown: Why Our Systems Fail and What We Can Do About It. The complete list of winners can be found at
We are seeking organization to join law firm Bennett Jones as a presenting partner at the $50,000 level or as a lead sponsor with naming rights at $100,000.

The National Business Book Award is a bespoke program that enables our strategic partners to forge relationships and connections with an elite audience who value fact-based and thoughtful content created by Canada’s thought leaders and writers. We work with each partner to make the NBBA work for them.

Freedman & Associates is honoured to have managed the National Business Book Award (NBBA) for most of the award’s history. The NBBA has become the most respected business literary award in Canada with a jury of high-profile business leaders, chaired by CBC’s Peter Mansbridge.
