The Canada-Africa Annual Investment Symposium serves as a ​dedicated platform for dialogue with a specific focus on fostering ​closer ties between Canadian and African markets. Our primary ​goal is to expedite the process of narrowing the investment gap ​prevalent in these regions. Distinguished by its high-level ​approach, the symposium effectively convenes influential ​decision-makers from both governmental and private sectors, as ​well as thought leaders from Canada and various parts of the ​African continent.

Symposium participants gain access to a well-established ​network, enabling them to explore novel business prospects, ​connect with potential partners, and establish meaningful ​relationships. This gathering not only facilitates these ​interactions but also provides a crucial opportunity to actively ​shape and advocate for trade policies that effectively promote ​Canada-Africa economic relations.

The 2025 event will offer a rich, in-person experience centred around ​enhancing economic ties between Canada and the African continent. It ​will comprised engaging plenary sessions and captivating fireside ​discussions with distinguished guests, featuring expert panels delving ​into the nuances of trade and investment opportunities between these ​vibrant markets. The primary objective is to explore and uncover ​avenues for fostering a mutually advantageous diplomatic path ​between Canada and Africa. Additionally, attendees will participate in ​meaningful dialogue and exchanges with fellow guests, fostering ​insightful discussions and networking opportunities.

The Symposium takes place annually at the prestigious Munk School ​of Global Affairs & Public Policy, an institution within the University of ​Toronto renowned for its interdisciplinary research, academic ​excellence, and global outreach. Founded in 2010, the Munk School is ​dedicated to pioneering groundbreaking ideas aimed at addressing ​significant challenges confronting the global community. The 2025 ​Symposium is scheduled for the 8th of February, 2025.
