Where: NorthwesTel Event Room, 2180 2nd Ave, Whitehorse, YT


We are pleased to invite you to a Women's Networking Roundtable focused on trade with the Indo-Pacific hosted by the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada (APF Canada) and the Canadian Women's International Network (CanWIN). The event will take place on Thursday, August 10, 2023, from 2:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at NorthwesTel Event Room, 2180 2nd Ave, Whitehorse, YT. Refreshments and snacks will be provided.

 As the Indo-Pacific region has become a significant economic powerhouse, Canada is actively engaging in trade relations with this region and has recently launched a whole-of-society Indo-Pacific Strategy. Women and gender-diverse people can play a pivotal role in promoting trade and investment between Canada and the Indo-Pacific, and our roundtable is an opportunity for women and gender-diverse people from Yukon to connect, share experiences and ideas, build relationships, and learn about upcoming opportunities to explore new global markets in the region. 

 The event will feature guest speakers who will share their insights on the Indo-Pacific region's economic landscape, as well as panel discussions on various aspects of trade with the Indo-Pacific. APF Canada will also share information about the recently launched women-only business mission to South Korea and Thailand later this year, Smarter Living: The Canadian Women-only Business Mission to South Korea and Thailand. There will also be plenty of networking opportunities with like-minded women and gender-diverse people from diverse backgrounds, industries, and organizations that support inclusive trade.

 Please RSVP by August 3, 2023, to confirm your attendance by registering here.
