Flying the flag for Ireland in Canada

Posted March 24th, 2017

In celebration of St Patrick’s Day, I joined Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at the head of the Paddy’s Day parade in Montreal. It was a great opportunity to meet the Canadian PM and chat about issues like the new free trade agreement with the European Union.

In Toronto and Montreal, as well as renewing important links with the Irish Diaspora, both young and old, I met with members of the business community and promoted Ireland’s case as the location of choice for Canadian financial services companies seeking access to the EU’s Single Market.
