Province Expands Economic Opportunities in Western Canada

Ontario is setting up a new trade office in Calgary to find new opportunities for Ontario businesses in Alberta’s key economic sectors. The new office is part of Going Global: Ontario’s Trade Strategy.

Dr. Eric Hoskins, Minister of Economic Development, Trade and Employment, made the announcement yesterday at the National Supply Chain Forum in Calgary. Many Ontario-based companies are at the forum, including specialists in wastewater treatment, custom fabrication, engineering and oil field services.

This initiative will help Ontario firms connect with companies in Alberta to fulfill supply needs. It will also explore opportunities for Ontario’s small- and medium-sized enterprises.

The province’s newest trade office will open in the coming months

Improving opportunities for Ontario companies to sell goods, grow, and create jobs at home is part of the government’s economic plan to support a dynamic and innovative business climate.
