Back in Toronto by popular demand, American Conference Institute/The Canadian Institute’s 2nd Industry Forum on “U.S. Export & Re-Export Compliance for Canadian Operations” is the only comprehensive, practical event in Canada that will allow you to network and hear from senior U.S. and Canadian government and industry professionals from the high technology, aerospace, defense, satellite, space and other industries.

Amid the recent $75 million penalty against Pratt & Whitney Canada, its parent company and additional subsidiary for U.S. export violations, there has never been a more pressing time to ensure that you are fully incorporating U.S. export controls, sanctions and Canadian export, human rights and privacy law requirements into a successful trade compliance program.

This is the only comprehensive event of its kind that will delve into export control reform, U.S. enforcement priorities, and the interaction between U.S. and Canadian export/re-export controls, privacy, human rights and security requirements.

The 2013 agenda will be fully updated, with a view to providing attendees with best practices that they can apply to their work after the event. New topics for 2013 will include:
  • Status Report on U.S. Export Control Reform, the Transition Plan and the impact on Canadian Industry
