U.S. - Canada Summit S.A.G.E.
When: Wednesday, June 15, 2016 - 07:30 - Friday, June 17, 2016 - 18:00


Strength comes in partnerships

This inaugural Summit has been launched by more than 50 U.S., Canada, and cross-border business associations and stakeholder groups to examine the future of the Canada-U.S. relationship. The event will develop a specific set of action items for the next U.S. Administration, Congress, and the Government of Canada, as well as regional, state, provincial, and local partners.

The more than 300 attendees will address the current status of the cross-border relationship in terms of advanced manufacturing, aerospace, agri-food, consumer products, and energy, as well as initiatives to expand trade and investment across the world’s longest safe and secure border. The Summit will place new emphasis on the future of binational relationships in areas such as additive manufacturing, innovation and R&D, labour mobility, and regional wellness.

This first of its kind event will conclude with the leading stakeholder groups meeting “under one roof” to develop an actionable set of deliverables for advancing the relationship in 2017 and beyond.


The participating delegates will discuss the existing initiatives that govern the cross-border relationship and advance actionable strategies for current and future Canada-U.S. measures. 


The U.S.-CANADA SUMMIT will launch a round of sustainable, cross-border advocacy initiated by the private sector. The event will provide an unrivalled, front-lines forum for engaging Canada-U.S. decision-makers at all levels of government. 


The U.S.-CANADA SUMMIT will provide the participating delegates with enhanced gateways and networks through which to conduct their cross-border activities, thereby mitigating the silos and stovepipes that confront the Canada-U.S. stakeholder community. 


The primary challenge confronting the bilateral relationship is the erosion of effective engagement mechanisms. The U.S.-CANADA SUMMIT will create ownership and buy-in among participants critical to longevity.
