The Canada-Africa Chamber of Business opens Ottawa Office

The Canada-Africa Chamber of Business is delighted to announce the opening of a new office on 1 Rideau Drive, Ottawa.

‘The Chamber’s ongoing expansion has merited an ever-growing presence in heart of the nation’s capital,’ says Chair of the Board Sebastian Spio-Garbrah, who recently relocated from Toronto.

‘Major strategic and policy discussions are crucial to enabling trade and investment; a potential worth trillions of dollars that is essential to Canada’s trade diversification agenda. Concurrently, Canada is a trusted partner for Africa’s economic growth’.

The Chamber’s Ottawa office is located at the historic Chateau Laurier, Suite 701 on 1 Rideau Street

‘I wish to thank the Chair of the Board in Ottawa and Susan Namulindwa, the Chamber’s Ottawa-based Vice President,’ said Garreth Bloor, President of The Canada-Africa Chamber of Business. ‘Our mandate for information-sharing is well-served in Ottawa, bringing together more key experts and decision-makers as we have begun doing in recent years.'

‘What has been achieved in Ottawa represents our ongoing growth agenda as an organization in cities in Canada and on the African continent.'

‘The opportunities in Africa are immense for Canada.’ says Susan Namulindwa, who joined the Chamber last year as a VP, under an MoU with the Africa Trade Desk- where she serves as founder and executive director. The expansion of the Chamber and its physical presence in Canada and Africa is testament not only to the response to growing interest, but pro-actively driving growth in trade and investment, which is vital to Canada and Africa’s dynamic markets.
