The 1st runner-up was Aleksandra Malkin, while the 2nd runner-up was the Cree community representative, Ashley Callingbull. Neda Derakhshanfar and Zarah Al-Aubiydy completed the Top 5 finalists.

Elena Semikina stands 1.86m tall and she will represent her country at the Miss Universe 2010 beauty pageant on August 23 to be held in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

As a new trend in beauty pageants, this year edition of Miss Universe Canada was not free of controversy. Yemeni-born Maria Al-Masani made headlines when declaring she would cover herself up during the swimsuit competition; then, newscasts had a field day when contestant Tiffany Munro linked poverty and malnutrition with Africa; and finally, Sophie Froment, from Montreal, was disqualified after it was discovered she shot a video campaign -nude- for a website that encourages extramarital affairs.
