On January 24 and 25, 2022 we will be partnering with the Ministry of Economic Development, Job Creation and Trade’s (MEDJCT) International Trade and Investment Offices (TIOs) to develop a partnership program and networking session with the provincial government’s international staff. The Government of Ontario, via MEDJCT, operates a network of International Trade and Investment Offices, located in Canadian diplomatic Missions around the world. Working closely with Canadian federal, provincial and municipal partners, these offices raise Ontario’s profile and build commercial relations in key global markets. They promote exports from Ontario, attract new companies, offices and facilities to Ontario and facilitate international research and innovation partnerships.

This session will provide an opportunity for EDCO members to profile their community to the TIOs, and for 1:1 breakout sessions between our members and select TIOs. Information for the two sessions is detailed below:

Session 1: Monday January 24, 2022, 9:30 AM – 11:00 AM EST

8 TIOs will attend (Mexico City, Paris, Munich, London, New York City, Dallas, Chicago, India (Mumbai and New Delhi, jointly represented))

Session 2: Tuesday January 25, 2022, 8:30 PM – 10:00 PM EST

6 TIOs will attend (Beijing, Shanghai (+Chongqing), Tokyo, Seoul, San Francisco)

Each session will include a 5-minute presentation by each municipality, followed by a 30-minute breakout meeting between yourself and a pre-matched TIO. We are limited to 5 EDCO municipalities per session, though you are able to sign up for both sessions if desired. Additionally, we have more TIOs in Session 1 so you may be able to engage with multiple TIOs if you can nominate multiple staff members to attend.

Please submit your intent to participate in this program by December 30, 2021.
