Re: Private Luncheon with Industry Canada Minister, Prentice
(January 30th at the Rideau Club in Ottawa)______________________________________________________________________
As part of advancing our Innovation Nation Platform, CATAAlliance is hosting a private luncheon with Industry Canada Minister Prentice on January 30th in Ottawa at the Rideau Club. If you have an interest in participating, as part of the CATA group carrying forward the messages relating to the challenges of growing a business in Canada, then please contact our offices to discuss how you can best be involved.
Context for the Meeting:
In many ways CATA is a political party, the party of the Canadian high tech industry. Our Innovation Nation Campaign is built from policy planks which will ensure success for Canada in the global economy. These include:
We have already confirmed a cross section of CEO’s, University Deans and Managing Directors to help advance the various policy planks.
In advance of the meeting with the Minister, and one of the benefits, are the briefing materials provided to his staff and related Ministries. Thus a one page of any special interests you have would be included in the briefings with officials prior to the meeting.
We will be supporting Executive participants with briefing materials. Barry Gander, CATA’s EVP is handling the communications and logistical aspects.
John Reid, President, CATAAlliance
