ICBA is an active industry association , always seeking opportunities to put Irish and Canadian business people in touch and inviting the Irish business community to meet visiting Canadians Ministers and Business People. The ICBA also stages social functions in conjunction with business activities to provide a venue for closer liaison between members. The Association has been involved in several Ministerial visits and is currently increasing commercial awareness of its activities and facilitating trade through its services. Breakfast and luncheon functions are staged when visiting speakers with significant news on trade fronts become available. Many activities are hosted in conjunction with the Canadian Embassy.
The ICBA offers the following benefits:
- Membership of the ICBA allows you access key players within the Canadian public and private sectors. Resources are available which can be leveraged by members who wish to expand their client base in Canada.
- The ICBA can help members gain access to key players in Irish industry and Irish public policy networks. Members have close alliances with opinion leaders and key media figures and can identify opportunities for Canadian companies entering the Irish market.
- The ICBA provides a platform within which you can network. The ICBA organises regular events which are well attended by the Irish business community.
Membership of the Association is drawn from a very wide range of companies - manufacturers, importers, exporters, state agencies, financial service companies, business advisers, tourist organisations, etc. All members can benefit from networking with other members. The events that are organised by the Association are an excellent forum for meeting other business people with an interest in promoting commerce (trade, investment or partnerships) between the two countries. With strong support from the Canadian Embassy in Ireland, the ICBA is also strengthening its links to sister organizations in Canada – i.e. The Ireland Canada Chamber of Commerce, Chapters in Toronto, Montreal, Edmonton and Montreal.
