    I.E.Canada’s 2017 Fall International Trade Summit will be an interactive roundtable session where I.E.Canada members hear from and speak with government representatives from CBSA and other government departments. The Fall Summit will cover broad national trade issues, but with a focus on regional implementation. Topics will address everything from CBSA’s new Commercial Vision right down to regional port operational issues.

    This is not a conference. The format of the Summit is designed to encourage active participation, giving you the opportunity to sit across the table from government decision makers and have a conversation about the issues impacting your business. This small, intimate event is limited to 70 participants, providing I.E.Canada members with exclusive access to policy makers, and providing opportunity for one-on-one interaction.
