2023 Team Canada
Trade Mission to Japan

I will be on the Team Canada Trade Mission to Japan representing the creative industries sector. As part of Canada’s Indo-Pacific Strategy, the Honourable Mary Ng, Minister of International Trade, Export Promotion, Small Business and Economic Development will lead a Team Canada Trade Mission to Japan to help Canadian exporters and innovators from across the country position themselves in this market by showcasing their capabilities and competitiveness and facilitate long-term trade and investment opportunities.

This page will be updated to highlight my experience post TCTM to Japan.

Trade Mission Dates
Sunday, October 29 – Thursday, November 2, 2023

Osaka and Tokyo, Japan with potential for another city (to be confirmed)

The trade mission program will be tailored to areas of Canadian competitive advantage and will focus on the following sectors:

• Priority sectors defined in Canada’s Indo-Pacific Strategy: agriculture and processed foods, clean technologies, clean energy, green infrastructure, life sciences, and information and communications technologies.

• Creative Industries sector, supported by the Department of Canadian Heritage, a Trade Commissioner Service partner under the Creative Export Strategy.
