Lucia; A Celebration of Light, December 1st 2017

You are cordially invited to Lucia

The Swedish-Canadian Chamber of Commerce cordially invites you to join us for our annual Lucia celebration!

“The air is getting colder, the holidays are near,
a time for celebration with those we hold so dear.
Let the warmth of the glögg take the chill from the air,
and the light from Lucia makes winter easier to bear.”

From your first sip at the glögg reception to the last bite of the Christmas ham, prepare yourself for a culinary journey through Swedish specialities and reinvented classics in a new take on this traditional buffet.

Invite your business acquaintances, friends, and family to get away from the daily routine and join us for an atmospheric afternoon as we celebrate the joy and wonder of Christmas and relationships beyond borders, all in the light of Lucia.

We are delighted to once again have Toronto Children’s Lucia Choir perform, as well as dazzling raffle prizes to be won and as always, the traditional singing of Schnapps songs!

Experience this one of its kind event in Toronto and enjoy a unique taste of Sweden!

Photo: Harry MarguliesMr. Margulies has resided in Canada since 1982 and was prior to moving to Canada a partner in a Swedish tax advisory service.

Prior to leaving Sweden, he has co-authored books on buying and selling corporations, the new tax avoidance act and written extensively in tax journals on Swedish-international tax issues (all in Swedish).

After leaving for Canada he has authored a number of articles in a Swedish tax journal on the Swedish-UK tax treaty. The Swedes had to renegotiate the tax treaty as a result of the tax treaty interpretations published in these articles and a landmark case won in the Swedish high tax court.

Mr. Margulies has continued to specialize in international tax issues. Specifically, with either Sweden or the UK on one side and in some cases, with Canada on the other.

His clients are almost all residents in Europe.

Mr. Fraser and Mr. Margulies have collaborated successfully in a number of Sweden-Canada and UK-Canada issues with Fraser Tax Law managing the Canadian side of the planning.

 

 

 James A. Fraser is a lawyer and was called to the Ontario Bar in 2007. Since graduating from U of T Law in 2006, he has practiced tax law in Toronto, and in 2014, launched his own boutique office, Fraser Tax Law. James specializes in international, corporate, personal and estate tax planning. This involves trust and estate planning, reorganizing corporate groups, cross-border structures and optimizing after-tax results on purchase and sale transactions.

James has extensive experience with individual residency and cross-border and offshore tax structures from a Canadian perspective. His background on Bay Street with a national Canadian firm provided a breadth of exposure beyond typical estate and corporate planning, which he now brings to bear for his clients.

facebook-banner-595

For Immediate Release

An ölfestival Is Coming To Bandshell Park, Exhibition Place!

A chance to Sample Sweden at Toronto’s Festival of Beer, July 22-24

Toronto, ON. (July 5, 2016) — Toronto’s Festival of Beer, presented by The Beer Store, is giving Toronto a chance to Sample Sweden! On July 22 to 24, the festival will work alongside the Swedish-Canadian Chamber of Commerce to feature six Swedish breweries, 28 different brands of beer and two renowned Swedish Chefs, inside a 10,000 square-foot zone, at Bandshell Park in Exhibition Place. Bier Markt is the exclusive restaurant partner of the Swedish Pavilion. Sample Sweden is proudly funded by the Government of Ontario and generously supported by IKEA Canada and Volvo Car Canada LTD.

“Discovery is a major part of Toronto’s Festival of Beer and beer culture in Sweden is growing so fast that making Sweden our feature country this year, was an easy choice,” said Les Murray, President of Toronto’s Festival of Beer. “It’s an opportunity for beer lovers in Toronto and beyond to sample great beer from a region of the world that produces great products.”

Sample Sweden will feature some of the country’s most adored breweries. Combined, each of these breweries will bring 28 different beers for attendees to sample with the majority of them not available for purchase in Canada. These breweries include:

Two of Sweden’s most renowned Chefs will also be in attendance at Toronto’s Festival of Beer. Chefs Peter J Skogstrom and Roland Persson are both former winners of Sweden’s Chef of The Year award, the country’s most prestigious competition for professional Chefs. They will be constructing some of their tasty creations for attendees to feast on in both our Club House La Grille Grilling Tent and in our Sample Sweden pavilion.

“This is a monumental occasion!” said Len Kleine, Chairman of The Swedish-Canadian Chamber of Commerce. “The spotlight is now on the very best of Sweden. Our beer, our Chefs and our culture will be front and centre at Toronto’s Festival of Beer.”

Toronto beer enthusiasts will have their first taste of Sample Sweden, available at all Bier Markt locations within the GTA, in advance of Toronto’s Festival of Beer. The restaurant will feature Leon by Omnipollo, a Belgian Pale Ale that is assertively hopped and fermented dry using champagne yeast, on tap from July 11 to July 24.

Bier Markt will also hold a promotion on food as well! The offer includes one ticket to Toronto’s Festival of Beer on the sold out date of Saturday, July 23, with the purchase of both a $15 Swedish dish and a Leon. The bundled offer is $50 + HST and is available until supplies last.

On Friday, July 22, media are invited to attend the official unveiling ceremony of Sample Sweden at Toronto’s Festival of Beer in Exhibition Place. This event will take place prior to public access to the festival and is opened by RSVP only. Photo and media opportunities with the feature Chefs and The Swedish-Canadian Chamber of Commerce will be available on site, and in advance of the festival by request only.
