Home to a huge talent pool - and one of Europe's lowest corporate tax rates - Ireland has caught the attention of many Canadian businesses as a country favourable to foreign expansion and growth.

Canada and Ireland are each significant trade partners and investors in each other's economies. This trade and investment covers a variety of sectors including renewable energy, real estate and technology.

Gowling WLG and Mason Hayes & Curran are pleased to host the Irish Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment Richard Bruton, Ambassador Jim Kelly and a panel of businesspeople and experts for a fascinating forum on how companies across diverse industries can benefit from investing in Ireland and its "springboard" effect into Europe.

Please join us for this engaging and interactive seminar. Space is limited, so be sure to RSVP as soon as possible.

*This program will count for up to 1.5 hours of substantive credits toward the mandatory CPD requirements of the Law Society of Ontario.
