The NECBC posts on this page news story excerpts related to member activities and U.S./Canada relations.  Be sure to check back for updates.

The NECBC also has a periodic newsletter, called "Connections", which reports on Council activities and provides information on Canada, the provinces, and cross-border trade and investment trends.  It informs readers of business opportunities, upcoming events, and activities of other Council members.  Past editions are posted in this section.














On June 13, entrepreneur, journalist and previous Canadian diplomat Scott Gilmore addressed an NECBC luncheon  on Canada-U.S. relations, and about whether the “American Dream” may have actually moved north. The event was held at Foley & Lardner LLP in Boston. Mr. Gilmore noted that the uncertainty currently being generated by the U.S. in its relationships with Canada and other nations offers Canada an opportunity. “Canada now has more swagger,” he said, and “Canada is beginning to redefine itself.” Shown here are (l to r) NECBC President Jon Sorenson, Scott Gilmore, Aaron Johnson, and Canada's Consul General David Alward.
