The Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada has announced that it will lead, with support from the private and public sectors, Canada’s first women-only business mission to Japan between April 1-3, 2019. The first two days will be held in Tokyo at the Canadian Embassy and will consist of business-to-business matching and network opportunities, industry site visits, and high-level discussions of women’s economic advancement strategies in Canada and Japan. The third day will be hosted at the Kyoto Women's University. The mission offers opportunities to 25 women entrepreneurs (founders of/CEOs or those leading Canadian businesses) looking to grow their businesses in Japan. The mission will focus on promoting woman-led or -founded companies that provide services, products, and solutions for the elderly and aging in Japan in the technology, services, and consumer products sectors. Manulife is the mission’s presenting sponsor, while Air Canada and Samantha Thavasa Japan Limited are gold sponsors. The application deadline is 6:00pm EST on January 14, 2019.
