Top Glass: Over There – The Opportunity for Canada’s Glass Industry in a New Era of Free Trade with Europe

April 20

Over There: The Opportunity for Canada’s Glass Industry in a New Era of Free Trade with Europe will be presenting at this year’s Top Glass Conference and Expo.

Yvon Chiasson, Senior Building Science Specialist is part of this 3-person panel presentation.

The session will take place at 11 a.m., April 20th.

Session Overview:

The ground is shifting in international commerce. It is a time of great uncertainty, but potentially also a great opportunity.

Glass Canada editor, Patrick Flannery, and a panel of handpicked experts discuss the recently signed Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) and what it means for Canadian architectural glass fabricators and contractors looking for business in Europe.

Topics will include:

  • changes to trade and tariff regimes,
  • differences between North American and European glazing standards
  • reviews of the construction industry prospects overseas.

As doubts swirl about the future of trade with the U.S., barriers are coming down across the Atlantic.

Other Panelists include:

  • Riyaz Dattu, Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt LLP
  • Bruce Nichol, Dow Corning U.K.
