The three-day conference will address and advance the immense opportunities for rapidly accelerating Canada-Africa trade and investment ties, followed by our final day and the VIP Reception to conclude the 3-day program.

‘’The 2023 conference in Toronto provides a phenomenal opportunity to welcome African business delegates to Canada’s largest city, while offering an enabling platform for networking, B2B meetings and dealmaking in and around the 3-day program,’’ said Garreth Bloor, President of The Canada-Africa Chamber of Business. 

Last year’s 2022 Africa Accelerating conference in Johannesburg, South Africa - sponsored by Ivanhoe Mines Ltd - took place under the theme, Leading from Africa: Toward a new global era enabled through Canada-Africa Collaboration.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was among those who addressed the event in October, joined by government heads, African Union leaders, corporate executives and entrepreneurs. 

The 3-day conference will conclude with the annual 2023 VIP Reception, celebrating the leaders in Canada-Africa trade and investment, over the past three decades. (Read More)    

Registration for Africa Accelerating 2023 opened on 16 January 2023. The program encompasses raising investment capital, trade opportunities, new business partnerships, infrastructure, and responsible resource development - building on the track record and lessons learnt on the foundation of billons already invested into African markets, through Canada.   

Africa Accelerating 2023 will once again include a live interactive virtual participation option.  

‘’Toronto is a gateway to North American markets and directly connected by air to the African continent,’’ noted Garreth Bloor. ‘’For all joining us in-person, our host city provides vital linkages to project partners and investors, driving the two-way trade and investment for deal-making that is at the core of our action-driven agenda for Africa Accelerating 2023.’’
