Our Sponsoring Members:

Dear Friends of CGCIC,

This month is truly the most wonderful time of the year, isn’t it? We celebrate, get together, give and share, and of course, take time to look back.

In the past year, hundreds of German and Canadian business representatives joined our projects with regard to various topics, from Aircraft Interiors, Lightweight Materials in Automotive Industry, to Big Data and AI as well as energy topics such as Smart Microgrids, Wood-based Power and Heat Generation.

Also this year, many more German and Canadian companies benefited from our services in terms of legal and tax, visa consultation, membership, exhibition participation and market research.

Thank you for choosing us! We value your trust and appreciate your support!

Wishing you a joyous Christmas and a prosperous New Year.

Your CGCIC Team

Did you know?
A Virtual Office address and/or telephone services enable companies to create a professional business image without incurring the costs of a physical workspace.

A virtual office enables businesses to have many of the benefits of a physical office but without any actual space or desks. Foreign companies that are not represented with their own branch or corporation in Canada, but have or plan to have business relationships with Canadian companies, often require a Canadian business address. Setting-up a virtual address in Toronto, Ontario is affordable and easy.
