Welcome to the Ireland Canada Business Association
As Chairperson of the Ireland Canada Business Association (ICBA), I am pleased to welcome you to this website. Our mission is to Connect, Communicate and Influence Irish - Canadian stakeholders on behalf of our membership, which has now grown to over 100 companies.
Canada is very quickly becoming one of the most significant FDI influences in Ireland, with over 75 operational companies here employing some 13,000 workers – an increase of over 40% since 2014. With Brexit strengthening Ireland’s position as a natural gateway to Europe for multinationals, boosted by the recent opening of an IDA office in Toronto and a new consulate in Vancouver, the opportunity for further growth between our two nations is sizeable.
The ICBA is proud of the work of our members and we look forward to further assisting them in their bilateral investment and trade between Canada and Ireland. We are committed to building on the work accomplished over the last 40 years to promote member views and protect their transatlantic businesses.
