Welcome to the Ireland Canada Business Association

Former Finance Minister, Jim FlahertyIt is with great sadness that the ICBA has learnt of the death of former Finance Minister Jim Flaherty.

The former Minister passed away on Thursday 10 April in his home in Ottawa. Former Minister Jim Flaherty was a great friend to Ireland and to the ICBA. On receiving Honorary Life Membership of the Association, former Minister Flaherty stated:
“For me coming to Ireland is a treat, a sort of homecoming. I have made many friends here and always look forward to visiting “
  
The ICBA would like to extend sincere sympathy to Christine and to her sons.
"Ar dheis Dé go raibh a h-anam dílis".

The Ireland Canada Business Association (ICBA) was founded in 1978 with the mandate of promoting and developing trade and industrial links between Ireland and Canada. The organisation is a non-profit bilateral trade association (effectively acting as a quasi chamber of commerce). The Patron of the Association is the Canadian Ambassador to Ireland, Mr. Loyola Hearn.

The Association's members are typically drawn from a wide range of Irish and Canadian firms from the financial services, manufacturing and services sectors with operations in Canada or Ireland.

An important aim of the Association for the coming year is to facilitate  interaction among members with networking events of the highest calibre.
