    With a bold vision to use a “Dutch Approach” to inspire Canadian cities can be less car dependent and to embrace a range of more active modes, Mobycon is showing that change is possible. While Mobycon has been involved in an increasing number of bicycle related projects there is also increasing demand around traffic safety, traffic calming, shared space, Vision Zero and study tours to the Netherlands.

Team members on both sides of the ocean overcome barriers of distance and time-zones through a series of virtual tools that minimize the need for travel and maximize idea sharing and collaboration with clients and partners.

    Trade Negotiations and Agreements

    Canada and the EU have a long history of economic cooperation. As an integrated block, the EU represents Canada's second largest trading partner in goods and services. Bilateral economic relations with the EU are very important to Canada, and this economic relationship is a high priority for the Government of Canada. Canada and the EU are working bilaterally to advance Canada-EU economic integration and facilitate trade and investment flows. The relationship is built on a base of concluded agreements and ongoing initiatives and negotiations.

    Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA)

    On 18 October 2013, Prime Minister Harper and European Commission President José Manuel Barroso announced an agreement in principle on a Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA). CETA is, by far, Canada's most ambitious trade initiative. Indeed, it is deeper in ambition and broader in scope than the historic North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Thedeclaration notes that this agreement marks the start of a new, stronger chapter in the long-standing partnership between the EU and Canada.

We look forward to having a significant and positive long-term impact on the Netherlands economy while creating jobs and helping the Netherlands achieve its renewable energy goals. I would like to thank the governments of both Canada and the Netherlands for their support, which has been fundamental to the project’s success.

    Said James Lambert, Canada’s Ambassador to the Netherlands: “As Ambassador, I am delighted with the choice of Northland Power for this award. The company demonstrates the power of partnership by enabling Canada’s largest-ever investment in the Netherlands, which will help to meet Dutch electricity needs with green energy, CO2 reductions and Canadian know-how.”

Northland develops, builds, owns and operates facilities that produce 'clean' (natural gas) and 'green' (wind, solar, and hydro) energy, providing sustainable long-term value to shareholders, stakeholders, and host communities.

    The company owns or has a net economic interest in 1,345 MW of operating generating capacity; 640 MW (400 MW net to Northland) of generating capacity under construction, including a 60% equity stake in Gemini, a 600 MW (360 MW net to Northland) offshore wind project in the North Sea near the Netherlands; and 456 MW (348 MW net to Northland) of projects with awarded power contracts under advanced development, including an 85% equity stake in Nordsee One, a 332 MW (282 MW net to Northland) offshore wind project in the North Sea near Germany.
