Oh Canada! Is open for business in Florida

Plantation, July 9, 2018 – Get ready for the Canada-Florida Chamber of Commerce (CFCC).  As of July 1st, the CFCC is officially in operation. It is the natural expansion of the previous Quebec-Florida Chamber of Commerce, an organization South Florida and Quebec have come to know since 2009 for its quality business networking events, conferences and effective trade missions. Canadians, not just Quebecois, have a strong business presence in Florida and deserve to be represented, supported, informed and connected through a professional network that provides its members new opportunities. I congratulate you on taking this step.  Organizations like the Canada-Florida Chamber of Commerce do very important work in fostering economic partnerships and supporting international trade and investment. It’s certainly easy to see why a Canada-Florida Chamber of Commerce is needed.  Trade between Canada and Florida is valued at 7.8 billion dollars US and that doesn’t even count services, which are harder to quantify. said the Honourable Marc Garneau, Canada’s Minister of Transport and Chair of the Cabinet Committee on Canada-US Relations, when he presented the CFCC a certificate of recognition this spring.

A Nationwide Representation

The progression of the Chamber is rooted in the clear demand for a nationwide representation of the many Canadian businesses and Florida based firms with Canadian interest. The state’s strong ties to its northern neighbor are that much more important with its growing population and expanding international community. As highlighted by Susan Harper, Consul General of Canada in Miami, “When you combine two-way trade, investment and tourism, Canada is by far Florida’s most important international economic partner. That is why I am delighted to now have another active partner in the Canada-Florida Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber will be invaluable in acting both as a catalyst for Canada-Florida business, and as a focal point for Canadian economic interests more generally.” The CFCC’s goal is to support more Canadian businesses, from all across the country, as they expand into Florida. The Sunshine State’s appeal is expected to only grow as it strengthens its position as the gateway to Latin America.
