The Conference

Bringing together Canada-connected individuals and organizations in Asia.

The Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada and Universities Canada are working together to deliver a world-class event in February 2023 – the Canada-in-Asia Conference – to catalyze a new and transformative phase of Canada-Asia engagement.

This conference of up to 500 participants will draw together Asia-based Canadian university alumni and major Canadian actors in Asia’s business and innovation landscape, with the potential to represent the most extensive people-to-people and institutional linkages across Canada and Asia to date.



Keynote speakers and panellists will be drawn from leading minds and power-players in Canada and Asia, including senior ministers, current and potential Nobel-laureate researchers, dynamic business leaders, and cultural figures.
