Multicultural Canadian Fair and Trade Show 2017

Etobicoke – 26 February 2017 – Young Professionals and Skilled Workers Association (YPSWA) successfully organized and hosted the first ever Multicultural Canadian Fair and Trade Show, which on social media used #MultiFair2017 as its hashtag.

The Multicultural Canadian Fair and Trade Show is a premier event in the Greater Toronto Area that brings together culture, arts and ethnic businesses and organizations for a day of business networking and intercultural interaction.

It showcased prominent multicultural chambers of commerce and their members, ethnic congresses, trade commissioners, SMEs and other organizations interested in serving ethnic communities, promoting businesses, find new customers, sell products and services and learn about export/import opportunities.

Belgian, British, Hispanic, Ukrainian, Greek, Albanian, Turkish, Iranian, Portuguese, Bulgarian, Polish, German and other cultures were present in the Fair. They were represented either by their chambers of commerce, congresses, federations, associations or businesses.

The trade show contained diverse companies, representing such sectors as aerospace, automotive, insurance, finance, waste management and education and many others. Aerospace companies were Shimco, CEL, FED Corporation and Providence Group and they wanted to capitalize on export/import leads that were presented by Chambers of Commerce. The automotive sector was represented by the largest in south Ontario auto dealership - Humberview Group.

In addition, the trade show was supported by agencies from three levels of government: Federal – Office of Small and Medium Enterprises (OSME) and Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC); Provincial – Ontario Ministry of Government and Consumer Services, Humber College and George Brown College, and Municipal – Toronto Fire Services, which were educating the multicultural public, organizations and businesses about their services to them.

MP James Maloney, MPP Peter Milczyn and MPP Yvan Baker along with presidents of ethnic congresses and foreign trade commissioners also attended the event. All Members of Parliament participated on key discussion panels that were directed specifically at multicultural leaders.

Subsequently, MPP Peter Milczyn made a statement in the Ontario Legislative Assembly about this event, in which he congratulated YPSWA and its many volunteers for organizing such successful event, and for the work they are doing in community.

During the breaks, cultural performances were performed by ethnic artists and performers. Victor Mishalow – a renowned Ukrainian-Canadian Bandura player, performed an exceptional piece for all visitors.

YPSWA is thankful to all sponsors, including to the Canfinse Group, Via Rail, Staples, Xtreme Couture -Mixed Martial Arts and Fitness, United Stars and Providence Group for sponsorship of this event. YPSWA is especially thankful to the Government of Canada for partial support of this event.

Multicultural Canadian Fair and Trade Show is planned to be repeated again next year.

YPSWA is a not-for-profit and federally registered organization and community-based organization,  which offers a great way for young professionals, skilled workers and apprentices in the Greater Toronto Area to network, socialize and expand their professional horizons.
