    Members can take advantage of three great deals: discounted airfares depending on class of travel

    In August 2016, the Netherlands-Canada Chamber of Commerce (NCCC) announced three special offers for companies being members of the NCCC when travelling to Canada in the coming eight months. Delivering added value for members is a core principle for the NCCC, which is why we developed, together with member Air Canada, this special program. Now members can enjoy a host of business, networking and industry events on both sides of the Atlantic.

    NCCC has partnered with Air Canada (AC) and is pleased to offer members who visit Canada a special discount on airfares. AC operates daily flights from Amsterdam to Toronto (with reduced frequencies in the Winter). Visitors to Canada can search for flights and book online at
    www.aircanada.com and will secure a discounted rate by putting one of the codes listed in the member-only area in the offer code box.

    Joost Hasperhoven, Manager Benelux for Air Canada says:”Air Canada’s award-winning service is recognized by many NCCC members already and I hope our special offers will encourage much more of our fellow-members to make the trip to Canada in the coming months.” 

    The three discount packages are available to book until 31st December 2016 and travel must be completed by 31st March 2017. For full details and to find the discount codes, please visit the member-only area of the website after logging in.

    QUEBEC CITY, 3rd Oct 2016: Today ambassador Henk van der Zwan is officially on the job: he presented his credentials today to His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada.

    Ambassador Van Der Zwan is looking forward to work with Canadians to maintain and expand the already rock solid relationship between Canada and the Netherlands. Deputy Head of Mission Frederieke Quispel accompanied ambassador Van Der Zwan to the capital of Quebec. 

    The newly appointed ambassador will raise awareness of “the Netherlands in Canada” in its broad sense and will brand the Netherlands as an innovative and green country, keen on sustainable solutions in urban environments (smart & liveable cities), education, focusing on trade and energy and working together on peace and security, and other important topics that bind Canada and the Netherlands.

    Ambassador Van Der Zwan is looking forward to meet as many Canadians as possible and to have a firm understanding of the country and its people by talking to people from all walks of life in his host country. He feels honoured to serve in Canada, and is in awe of its magnificent beauty and space. The  rock solid and unique relationship the Netherlands and Canada has developed over the years is not seen as a given, but as a huge privilege to work with and to further develop in the coming years.

    Accreditation occurs when a new ambassador presents "letters of credence", or diplomatic credentials, to the host country's official head of state. Letters of credence, which are signed by the ambassador's own head of state, confirm that the ambassador is authorised to represent his or her country, and ask that the host country respect this fact.

    Minister of Foreign Affairs and Canadian AmbassadorThe NCCC was once again proud to be a sponsor of the Canada Day celebrations held yesterday at the Official Residence of the Canadian Ambassador to the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

    Chairman John van Pol met with Stéphane Dion (centre), the Minister of Foreign Affairs in Ottawa, and Sabine Nölke, the Canadian Ambassador, during the festivities.

    The Netherlands is Canada’s fifth-largest trading partner – second largest in the European Union – and the second-largest investor in Canada.  Over one million Canadians can trace their roots back to the Netherlands, and thousands of Canadians have made the Netherlands their home. 

    During the opening speeches, both the Minister and the Ambassador made reference to the continuing good relations between the two countries; whether it is through the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, of which Ms Nölke is a permanent member, the international courts and legal institutions based in The Hague, or the growth in trade, commerce and cultural relations.

    After a number of weeks of heavy rain, the weather cooperated and the outdoor BBQ was a big hit.
