Opportunities for business are limitless. Join sector leaders, from experienced executives to emerging entrepreneurs, to discuss cutting-edge insights, future trends and business development opportunities.

By building innovative partnerships, the Canada-Africa Clean Growth Symposium will advance our shared Sustainable Development Goals, including climate action, gender equality and poverty eradication, while driving inclusive and environmentally responsible economic development and advancing the African Union’s Agenda 2063 and the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
