While CETA will soon be celebrating its third year of implementation, EUCCAN has been working on the ground for the past 25 years to strengthen trade between Canada and the EU.
The story began in 1995 with EUCOCIT (European Union Chamber of Commerce in Toronto) establishing the purpose of strengthening economic ties between Toronto and Europe. As part of the organization’s expansion efforts to become a country-wide European platform in Canada not just in Toronto, EUCOCIT then became EUCCAN (European Union Chamber of Commerce in Canada) in 2013.
Since then, EUCCAN has worked with institutional, public and private partners to promote trade and investment in the two zones and has been working on the dissemination of information within the framework of CETA for European and Canadian companies.
Building on this experience, EUCCAN will launch from September 2020 until December 2020 a series of events online (and in Toronto if possible) to celebrate this 25th anniversary milestone. We will update companies on CETA after the third year of implementation. We will also have webinars for the European companies to discover the potential of each Canadian province in terms of trade and investment. We will share recent success stories of development in the framework of CETA, we will introduce you to each member, and as well, provide individual country overview sheets for each of the European countries.
