SEDCOR hosted a business roundtable in October for companies interested in learning about business opportunities in Canada featuring Canadian Consul General James Hill.


The purpose of the gathering was to promote cooperation between Canadian and Mid-Willamette Valley companies, to educate traded sector companies and economic development professionals on how to trade with Canada, and to raise awareness of international business development programs.


Local chambers and economic development representatives touted the benefits of doing business in each of their regions and officials from Canada promoted opportunities to invest in and do business with Canada. Joining the Consul General were Head of Trade Michael Wooff and Investment Manager Lewis Coughlin.


Attendees heard presentations from Jody Christensen, Executive Director of the McMinnville Economic Development Partnership; Kelly Schreiber, Executive Director of the Stayton Sublimity Chamber of Commerce; Dan Clem, Executive Director of the Salem Area Chamber of Commerce; and Jean Love, Executive Director of the Monmouth-Independence Chamber of Commerce.


The event was organized by the Monmouth-Independence Chamber of Commerce and hosted by SEDCOR, and was produced as a partnership with Mid-Willamette Valley area chambers of commerce.
