Canada - United States Trade: First successful collaboration


Montreal, May 27, 2019 – The Regroupement of Young Chambers of Commerce of Quebec (RJCCQ), in collaboration with the American Chamber of Commerce of Canada (AmCham Canada), is pleased to have held the first edition of a meeting of cross-border business between Canadian and American entrepreneurs.
