In celebration of Europe Day on May 9, 2018, the City of Toronto's Economic Development and Culture Division in partnership with World Trade Centre Toronto, is hosting a half-day event at Toronto City Hall. The program will provide an update on the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) between Canada and the European Union. Learn how CETA can benefit Toronto region businesses through new and expanded opportunities in the EU.

WHY THE EUROPEAN UNION?

Canadas second most important trading partner $39.8 billion worth of Canadian merchandise was exported to the EU in 2016

With the uncertain status of NAFTA, Europe represents an opportunity for market diversification

WHO SHOULD JOIN US

Companies interested in doing business with Europe, and who want to learn about the trade opportunities created by CETA.
