The Finnish-Canadian Business Council is organising its traditional event with the Ambassadors of Finland to Canada in August!

When? Wednesday, 23rd of August 2023, at 16:30-18:00
Where? Finland Chamber of Commerce, World Trade Center Helsinki, Aleksanterinkatu 17, Helsinki and online via Microsoft Teams

Canada and Finland have many things in common: a Northern location with cold winters, shared values, a highly educated population and similar mentalities. Canada is also one of the world’s wealthiest nations, offering opportunities for Finnish companies across several different sectors.

During this year’s event, we are fortunate enough to hear in-person presentations from not one but two experts: The current Ambassador of Finland to Canada, Mr Roy Eriksson and his successor, Mr Jari Vilén, who will be stationed in Ottawa as of next September. The presentations will be followed by open discussion and networking.

Seats are limited, so please register as soon as possible, but no later than the 21st of August. We hope to see you there!

A Teams-link will be sent to online participants closer to the event.
