Ireland & Canada: Growing Trade and Investment Opportunities

08 March 2019

Gowling WLG and Mason Hayes & Curran were pleased to host the Irish Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment, Richard Bruton, Ambassador Jim Kelly and a panel of businesspeople and experts for a fascinating forum on how companies across diverse industries can benefit from investing in Ireland and its "springboard" effect into Europe. The event took place in Gowling WLG offics in Toronto on Friday 8 March.

Home to a huge talent pool — and one of Europe's lowest corporate tax rates — Ireland has caught the attention of many Canadian businesses as a country favourable to foreign expansion and growth. Canada and Ireland are each significant trade partners and investors in each other's economies. This trade and investment covers a variety of sectors including renewable energy, real estate and technology.
