Event Description:

Opportunities North 2017

Historically, businesses in St. John’s have not “looked north”, nor taken advantage of the trade and business opportunities that exist in Labrador and the Arctic. Because of the amount of interest paid to Labrador, northern Quebec and Nunavut by international companies, the need for businesses in St. John’s to become involved in northern opportunities is urgent and important. On March 27th, the St. John’s Board of Trade will host a conference that will concentrate on economic development and practical solutions for succeeding in the north.
