2nd Canada-Africa Business Conference

19-20 February 2024
Nairobi, Kenya

The Canada-Africa Chamber of Business is delighted to announce the second Canada Africa Business Conference, following the success of our first ever program at the Gaborone International Convention Centre in Botswana.  

The announcement was made following the video address of President William Ruto to the Africa Accelerating 2023 conference in Toronto, currently taking place from 10 - 12 October 2023, opened by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.


Following President Ruto's address, Chamber President Garreth Bloor thanked Bramex Ltd for the recent Kenya Trade Mission to Canada and applauded Hatch for underwriting the upcoming Canada-Africa Business Conference in Nairobi.

In partnership with the Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA), the Canada-Africa Business Conference will seek to bring together key players, following the same format as the last conference: a day long program at the Muthaiga Country Club, a VIP reception and a second day of site visits in Nairobi on 20 February 2023.   

We are delighted to be back in Kenya, following this year's Kenyan Trade Mission to Canada, the 2020 Clean Tech Seminar and the visit of Hon Mary Ng, Canadian Minister of Minister of Small Business, Export Promotion and International Trade of Canada, as well as the Chamber's Nairobi Reception at the High Commission of Canada in 2019.

We are excited to collaborate with the Canada-Africa Chamber of Business and are looking forward to the forum that will promote trade and investment between Canada and our great continent of Africa.  This forum aims to widen the scope of available opportunities in medical care, infrastructure, energy, FinTech and project financing.”

- Ms Carole Kariuki, Chief Executive Officer, Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA).
