We are happy to announce that we are currently hosting the “Canada and Germany: Partners from Immigration to Innovation” exhibition at Enterprise Square. The exhibition was curated by the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany in Ottawa for the purpose of celebrating the 150th anniversary of Canada, as well as the long and positive relationship between the two countries.
For the opening of this exhibition, we hosted a reception on German Unity Day, Oct 3, 2017. We were pleased to welcome friends, colleagues, some of the companies we’ve funded through the Alberta-Germany Collaboration Fund, as well as esteemed members of the German community here in Edmonton.
On the same day, we also held a press event in the morning where we welcomed numerous companies that have received funding through GCCIR programs. It was great to see them present their successful projects!
The exhibition will be in Edmonton until Oct 27, and we encourage everyone to stop by for a look!
