Pathways for Entrepreneurship: A Focus on Women and Youth


May 2021  


De-Risking the World's Future Growth Engine: In our 27-year history as a Chamber of Business, the latest range of risk insurance instruments is a major leap forward for Canadian institutional investors and African countries - standing to unlock billions in investment capital.      




I think the Chamber should focus more on a specific topic or theme. Can you do so?

 The Chamber is responsive to members for topics and themes. Members determine the agenda and as a result support the delivery of specific event topics or themes. We are open to receiving suggestions for topics or themes from all, not only members.

How do you promote the case for Africa in Canada?

We influence the “influencers” meaning we share our proprietary data and insights with leaders and leading organization. For example, we commented on the Business Council of Canada report Why Africa, released after the Prime Minister’s visit to Africa and which we were called to comment upon. Here, Goldy Haida, CEO of Business Council of Canada shares his thoughts on this topic. In another example, policy ideas conveyed to the Canada Africa Growth Coalition were in reflected in Prime Minister Trudeau’s platform. Listen to what the PM has to say about Canada-Africa Relations here.

Are you limited to businesses?

Our activities and membership are not limited to business alone. Discussion on the role of business and an enabling environment for trade and investment to take place bring together several important players. For example, Canada’s Fraser Institute – currently ranked the most influential think tank – freely shares their findings in the annual Economic Freedom of the World report, which has informed discussions on creating a good environment for doing business.

What does the Chamber mean by ‘networking and information-sharing’?’

Networking takes place at Chamber events in-person where members interact with others to exchange information and develop professional or social contacts. Information-sharing covers strategy and public policy discussions.
