Alterna Savings Client Environmental Defence Wins $10,000 Moneris Small Business Contest

Moneris recently announced Alterna client Environmental Defence as the winner of the $10,000 Moneris Small Business Contest. The contest was designed to recognize the positive contributions of small businesses to the Canadian economy, and to provide the winner with the opportunity to expand their business.
