October 21, 2010
8:30am-12:30pm
Senate Room, 608 Robertson Hall, Carleton University, Ottawa

Hosted by:

Shridath Ramphal Centre, University of West Indies (UWI) – Cave Hill

Canadian International Council (CIC) – National Capital Branch

 


   On June 8, 2010, the CIC released its Global Positioning Strategy (GPS) report “Open Canada: A Global Positioning Strategy for a Networked Age” to wide acclaim.  “Provocative.” “Bold.”  “Original.”  These are a few of the many ways business leaders, former senior practitioners, and other experts from across Canada described the report’s recommendations on how Canada should engage in the world

    This workshop will pick up on the GPS Report’s recommendations on “brain-chain” and diasporic competitive advantages and ask the question: how do we put these advantages into practice to the benefit of both Canada and the Caribbean? 

    Canadian and Caribbean experts will discuss their latest findings and encourage a discussion about practical recommendations to put forward to both the policy and business communities interested in promoting a stronger Canada-Caribbean relationship. 

    The research is focused on sectoral studies (health, education, financial services, information communication technology) and case studies of Caribbean diasporic communities in global cities (Toronto, New York, London, Amsterdam).


  PANEL 1: MOBILE POPULATIONS AND “BRAIN CIRCULATION/CHAIN” SYNERGIES

PANEL 2: TAPPING INTO THE POTENTIAL OF DIASPORA TOURISM
