As part of its Canada-U.S. Engagement Plan, the Canadian Chamber of Commerce is leading its second of four 2024 missions to the U.S. on May 1 and May 2.

“This engagement with our North American business counterparts and officials is vital, and I’m pleased to lead such a strong and diverse group of Canadian business leaders to D.C.,” said Perrin Beatty, President and CEO of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce.

USMCA is the largest free trade region in the world, representing a third of global GDP.

The Chamber’s delegation is made up of two dozen Canadian business leaders from various sectors including energy, tech, finance, insurance, transportation, professional services. It also includes representatives from provincial partner organizations. They will take part in two days of programming and engagement opportunities at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the Centre for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), and the Embassy of Canada.

On day one, Canadian delegates will meet with Team Canada Hub leaders from Global Affairs and officials at the Embassy of Canada. They will then join U.S. Chamber members to hear from Canadian provincial reps in D.C., including David Paterson (Ontario), James Rajotte (Alberta) and Benjamin Belair (Quebec), as well as from U.S. Government representatives from the Departments of State, Commerce, and the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR).

On day two, delegates will discuss trade issues at a private morning session with U.S.-Canada experts like Dr. Laura Dawson, Executive Director of the Future Borders Coalition and Josh Meltzer, Senior Fellow, Global Economy & Development at the Brookings Institution, as well as with senior American political staffers from both sides of the aisle.

In the afternoon, the Canadia Chamber has collaborated with the Americas Program at CSIS to present a public event, “North American Economic Security in an Era of Geopolitical Uncertainty,” which will feature former trade chief trade negotiators from the U.S., Canada and Mexico, and several political veterans with deep experience in foreign affairs and trade across North America.

Speakers on May 2 will include the Ambassador of Canada to the United States Kirsten Hillman, Former Canadian Minister Peter MacKay, former Mexican Ambassador to the United States, Geronimo Gutierrez, and Ronald Kirk, former U.S. Trade Representative.
