The polar bear at the entrance beckoned – for a cuddle and a photograph. Inside, the camaraderie was in the air as Indians and Canadians mingled. It was the Canada 150 networking reception at Four Seasons Hotel, hosted by the Consulate General of Canada in Mumbai.
Making her presence felt was Bardish Chagger, Canada’s Minister of Small Business and Tourism and Leader of the Government in the House of Commons. She spoke straight from the heart and spread cheer and goodwill all around.
You heard that on her visit, the minister met with representatives of the tourism industry as well as those of Indian and Canadian start-ups and small businesses, women entrepreneurs and Indian business leaders.
The evening reception highlighted the growing Canada-India linkages, including a direct flight between Toronto and Mumbai to be launched on July 1.
The minister was proud to be one of four Canadian Cabinet Ministers of Indian heritage and that her visit to India is the seventh in the last eight months by a Cabinet Minister of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Government.
The cocktail-dinner reception was in association with Air Canada, Canada Keep Exploring and ICBC.
