    Indian Summer’s annual Dinner by Starlight fundraising gala is one of the most anticipated events of the year. Seats to this event are limited and the event attracts an audience of 250 discerning guests and supporters.

    This year's Dinner by Starlight takes place in the oceanfront Grand Ballroom of the Fairmont Waterfront Vancouver. Canadian culinary magician chef Vikram Vij collaborates with celebrated chef Karan Suri to create one-time-only culinary delights that resonate with the evening’s theme, 'The Future is Asian.'

    The theme takes its name from the book by our very special guest of honour, Dr. Parag Khanna, geostrategist, futurist, and best-selling author.

    May 7: Canada's Investment Monitor 2019: Stories From the City Level

    The Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada is proud to announce the launch of its signature, annual Investment Monitor report, which delves into foreign direct investment (FDI) between Canada and the Asia Pacific.

    The 2019 report’s main focus on city-level FDI between Canada and the Asia Pacific is the first data-driven analysis at this level of detail on an issue that has captivated business headlines across Canada. It answers key questions on the who, what, where, when, and how of the Asia Pacific region’s investment into Canada – and conversely, on Canada’s own investments across the Asia Pacific.

    By harnessing primary sources and in-depth research, the 2019 Report adds much-needed nuance to flashpoint discussions on the future of Canada’s economic engagement with the Asia Pacific.

    The launch coincides with the online release of new data through investmentmonitor.ca, which allows Canadians to use easily accessible data visualization tools to uncover novel stories about the Canada-Asia Pacific investment relationship, right down to their local cities and sectors.
