All qualified candidates will be judged based on a combination of merit and public voting. Independent judges are selected based on their work experience, level of education, and contributions to the Canadian community. Their evaluation will carry a weight of 50% while the remaining 50% weight will be assigned to public voting. Judge scores and public voting scores are consolidated to select a winner.
