Words from our Chairman

Len Kleine

Dear Valued SCCC Member!

Last year we celebrated our fiftieth anniversary: our Golden Jubilee! Because of your support it was a very memorable occasion. (If you did not receive a copy of the Golden Jubilee Booklet, see below for how you can get yours.)

This year we are looking forward to a new series of events and opportunities: chances to network with each other and to promote Swedish business in Canada. Some of these opportunities will be internal to the Chamber and its members, while others entail acting as partners with external organizations.

We will continue to aid the Team Sweden efforts to promote the Swedish brand in Canada. One example we would like to take this opportunity to highlight is our exclusive partnership with Beerlicious: Toronto’s Festival of Beer, which is showcasing Sweden as its featured country. This event will take place July 22-24 2016 at Bandshell Park, Exhibition Place. Look for us at the Swedish Pavilion!

Other events under discussion (we welcome your feedback!) include: a morning seminar entitled “New Economy”: A look at the pros and cons of Sweden’s promise of cash free society by 2020; the Annual Nordic Consular Golf Tournament is planned for September 8th;  and the Lucia Luncheon is already booked for December 2nd. As Prime Minister Trudeau is beginning to set national carbon objectives, we are looking to bring Sweden’s 25 years of experience to Toronto at a day seminar covering Carbon Tax, New Innovation, and the importance of CSR.

Let us know if there are any other activities that you would like to see us undertake; your participation is always appreciated, and we are always happy to hear from you!

Sincerely,
Lennart P. Kleine
SCCC Chairman

We are pleased to welcome Graham Parkinson as a new member to SCCC

Miller Thimson Logo

Graham Parkinson is a corporate commercial lawyer with Miller Thomson, practicing primarily out of the Kitchener-Waterloo office.

Graham’s connection with the Nordic countries began when in high school he participated in a Rotary international exchange program and lived for one year in a small town in Norway.  During law school at Queen’s University, Graham had an opportunity to use some of his language skills and worked as a research assistant to Prof. Kathleen Lahey on a project concerning Sweden’s use of tax policy to further gender equality.  After receiving a scholarship from the Swedish Women’s Educational Association, Toronto, Graham spent the fall of 2013 studying international commercial arbitration and European law at Uppsala University.

Graham is excited to get involved with the Swedish Canadian Chamber of Commerce as a means of maintaining his connection with Sweden and helping to strengthen the relationship between the two countries.
