The Bermuda Executive Forum will be held for the first time in Canada on June 19, with Bennett Jones LLP senior partner Duncan Card as one of the panelists.

 

The multi-industry forum in Toronto will showcase Bermuda's business links and mutually beneficial relationship with Canada. It will be the sixth overseas forum and the first in Canada, the Bermuda Business Development Agency, the forum’s organizer, said in a statement. Previous events were in London, New York and Miami.

 

Keynote guest speakers will be Canadian Consul General Phyllis Yaffe and fintech entrepreneur Lucia Gallardo.

 

“We are delighted to welcome Consul General Yaffe to help us launch our inaugural Canadian forum, which will highlight our long-standing relationship with Canada, as well as current opportunities that continue to connect both our nations in both traditional and emerging industries,” said BDA chief executive Andy Burrows. "We look forward to meeting new colleagues in the Canadian market and building on Bermuda's already strong strategic relationships.”

 

“Bermuda is an exceptional jurisdiction from which to successfully expand Canadian business internationally,” said Card, who managed the Canadian law firm's Bermuda office from 2014 to 2018. "With very close proximity to the east coast of North America, a highly beneficial tax agreement with Canada and an extremely well-educated population, Bermuda has been the leading choice for many well-known Canadian businesses to locate the management of their global expansion."
