Dear Canadian Expats,

 

On behalf of the International Economic Forum of the Americas (IEFA), it is a pleasure to extend an invitation to you to attend the 11th Edition of the Toronto Global Forum that will take place from October 30 to November 1, 2017 at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel.

 

We are pleased to announce that this year the IEFA will host a special edition of the Toronto Global Forum to mark the 150th anniversaries of Canada and Ontario. Particularly, in conjunction with Ontario’s Ministry of International Trade, the IEFA has established a Canadian Expat Program, where you will have the opportunity to hear notable global business leaders with Canadian roots share their expertise and experiences from their industries. The Forum will feature a wide range of stimulating business opportunities whilst combining official visits to business programming venues and facilitating meetings with stakeholders. Prominent leaders and decision makers from across the international economic and political arenas will be in attendance.

At our core, The Canadian Expat believes the community of Canadians living abroad is an integral part of Canada. Not only does this community provide value to the individuals that call themselves Expats, it also provides value to the rest of Canada and to all Canadians.  This value is represented economically, culturally and politically.  We believe, without a doubt, that protecting the rights of Canadians abroad is a step towards protecting the rights of all Canadians, regardless of where they currently reside.  More about our values, mission & vision
