With so much positive feedback from the more than 150 professionals who attended the previous two years, Area Development and the The CAI Global Group are pleased to announce the third edition of The Canadian FDI Forum.

The program provides economic development professionals an opportunity to better understand the needs of United States and international investors and gain perspectives on current investment criteria and how it affects the site selection process. Attendees will hear from site consultants, corporate executives and industry experts whose key takeaways are designed to add value to your program's business attraction and retention strategy.

The 2017 Canadian FDI Forum in Qu´┐Żbec City received high remarks from attendees and speakers. We are confident that Ottawa will exceed these standards.


The Forum opens Monday with registration and an evening Networking Reception and Dinner at the hotel.

The Tuesday and Wednesday daily programs consist of presentations and panels, ending with roundtable discussions where attendees will have the opportunity to engage face to face with speakers. The schedule includes breakfast, lunch and refreshment breaks where attendees can network with speakers and colleagues.
