Invest in Canada, in partnership with the Consulate General of Canada in Miami and members of the Consider Canada City Alliance (CCCA) brought together international business leaders, influencers and industry champions from across Canada and Florida for an informative discussion highlighting Canada’s unique investment opportunities, particularly in information and communications technology and life sciences.

The business outreach program reached close to 40 Florida companies at this exclusive, invitation-only gathering in the lead up to the Toronto Pan Am Games. More than 25 one-on-one meetings were held between Canadian cities’ and provinces’ economic development organizations and Florida business executives.

  • Rafal Rohozinski, Principal, The SecDev Group
  • Veronika Litinski, Advisor, Life Sciences and Healthcare, MaRS; President, Konona Health
  • Louis Guay, R&D Tax Credit Manager, Kaufman, Rossin & Co.

The plenary and panel discussion was moderated by Joseph Mann, a Miami-based freelance journalist and business writer.

A positive news article published in the Miami Herald following the event reached 1.5 million subscribers in South Florida.

With a top performing economy, sound banking system, highly skilled workforce, low taxes, and a commitment to free and open trade, evidenced by NAFTA, the recently announced Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA), and our ongoing participation in the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) free trade negotiations, Canada is an excellent location for investors.
