On the occasion of the visit to Toronto of the EU Ambassador to Canada, EUCCAN hosted a Business breakfast with CEOs of EU companies operating in Canada.

Ambassador Gabric started by stating the very good relations between the EU and Canada. “We are closer than ever and enjoy a close-knit relationship, both politically and in the bilateral trade”.

After a presentation round table, the CEOs exchanged on the opportunities and challenges of operating in Canada in such period. The discussion focused around sustainability by questioning how EU companies in Canada can better support Canada’s net zero agenda. They also shared their experience in terms of labor mobility and harmonization of standards and regulations.

As the business voice of EU companies in Canada, EUCCAN will organize later in November a round table on sustainability to further discuss the challenges and opportunities. Topics around labor mobility and standards and regulations will be covered together with EU businesses in 2022.

Participating companies at this breakfast meeting: Accor, Caixa Bank, Ferrero, Kingspan, Rexel, Schneider Electric, Velux and Volvo.
