32 LEXPERT MAGAZINE | MARCH 2017 COVER STORY Canadian AS THE ONLY PROGRAM OF ITS KIND IN CANADA, THE CANADIAN DEALMAKERS AWARDS RECOGNIZE PARTICIPANTS WHO HAVE MADE SIGNIFICANT CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE M&A MARKET BY SANDRA RUBIN DEALMAKERS OF 2016 WHEN LEXPERT, together with Deloitte, e Globe and Mail and omson Reuters, created the Canadian Dealmakers Program in 2007, the driving force was to look beyond the deals that define Canada's capital markets and celebrate the executives, in-house counsel, lawyers and bankers who actually shaped those transactions. e program works like this: nominations are collected and turned over to an adjudication panel to determine which ones best benefited both their industries and this country as a whole. e panelists, leaders in Canada's business community, look for hallmarks of excellence. ey can range from the creation of shareholder value to the promotion of growth and innovation; deal-making that brings the company up to a new level in its market; stewardship through new legal or regulatory terrain; or even, in the case of banks, the sheer number or value of deals completed in a single year. Once the decisions are made, the winners are recognized at the annual Canadian Dealmakers gala dinner, which brings together leading decision- makers and advisors from the world of M&A and corporate finance to celebrate the art of the deal. is year's event was held on March 9th at the Royal York Hotel in Toronto.
