Each day TFO Canada publishes a sample of trade news on the Canadian import market along with any new, updated or changed regulations and legislations regarding international trade; countries in which TFO Canada offers services and on the export sectors which it promotes.
The team at Trade Facilitation Office Canada is pleased to announce a new look to our organisation. Effective today we will be known simply as TFO Canada and our web site (www.tfocanada.ca) and e-mail addresses have been changed accordingly. Our former e-mail addresses will continue to function. Today we are also releasing a new brochure that describes the mandate and work of TFO Canada and some of the results achieved over the past couple of years together with our overseas and Canadian partners. The document can be viewed at www.tfoc.ca/global/File/TFOCanada2007.pdf.
I’m also pleased to announce the addition of two members to the TFO Canada team. On November 5th, Norman MacIssac (firstname.lastname@example.org) joins our Ottawa office in the new position of Program Director. Norman has held a number of leadership roles in international development programming, most recently serving as Regional Director (Latin America) for CECI (Centre d’étude et de cooperation internationale). In the Program Director role, Norman will be responsible for overseeing the implementation of our various country programs and will work closely with our Project Managers and development partners in this regard. I am also delighted to welcome back, Marc Germain (email@example.com) who was on staff with TFO Canada in the 1990s and who has recently served as an Associate on several African and Latin American projects. Marc joins us in the new position of Regional Representative (Quebec) and will serve as a contact point for TFO Canada in Montreal for partner country trade offices located there, and will also support and broaden our linkages with the Quebec import community for the benefit of developing country exporters who use our services.
