Host - Jessi Cruickshank

Jessi’s ease in front of an audience and her personable demeanour make her a natural choice for a wide variety of events — from hosting and moderating, to keynotes and endorsements. Jessi broke into comedy as the only female in an all-male improv troupe alongside Seth Rogen.

Jessi went on to host Live from E!, Oh Sit!, Jerseylicious, Olympic Morning, and recently wrapped six seasons as the Los Angeles-based host of Canada’s #1 entertainment show, eTalk. Jessi also travelled the world as an ambassador for Free the Children, now known as
