“We invite our dear members and the public to join us for a festive celebration showcasing an authentic taste of Italy. For three full decades, the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Canada – West has been driving economic impact by giving Italian and Canadian businesses customized solutions and a platform to broaden their business horizons into the Canadian and Italian markets,” said Ilaria Baldan, Executive Director of the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Canada – West. “Events comprise a vital part of our work, and we are looking forward to celebrating this milestone anniversary with friends and colleagues, new and old.”

They have some great online resources available as well, like the Italian Food Map featuring where to buy authentic Italian food and wines in Western Canada, and the Italian Design Map to search for made in Italy products near you.
