CFCC Board of Directors with Ambassador Eriksson
On November 12, 2019, the Canada-Finland Chamber of Commerce (CFCC) held its first autumn event to formally introduce the community to the new Ambassador of Finland to Canada, His Excellency Roy Eriksson, and Business Finland’s new local office in Toronto. Business Finland is an important public funding agency for Finnish research, trade and development, and is headed up in Canada by Seppo Tossavainen and Jonas Granqvist.
Building upon the launch of Business Finland’s office in Toronto, the primary focus of this event was discussing how to support Finnish companies to gain a foothold into the Canadian market. The evening began with open networking and a photo opportunity with the Ambassador.
Following presentations from the Ambassador, Business Finland and the CFCC, there was an engaging question period which addressed a number of interesting topics related to Finnish-Canadian affairs. The strong showing from business people around the GTA who attended the event spoke volumes to the excellent support network present in the Finnish Canadian community.
