Personal Development

The ICCC is pleased to host a selection of business seminars. Subjects may focus on current issues, marketing tools, and management training. We may also promote select personal development seminars, webinars, and workshops organised by other chambers of commerce and by ICCC members. For more information on the ICCC’s August 28 seminar “Taking Social Media to the next level; Learning from Big Brands”, view Social Media Seminar .

Promotion

New members are showcased in the first newsletter following their membership approval by the ICCC board. In addition to obtaining a clickable entry in the business directory, new members will have a hotlink on the footer of the ICCC home page for a period of eight weeks.

All members may update their company listing in the ICCC online business directory at any time. In addition, we are happy to disseminate corporate and personal development news on their behalf in the ICCC newsletter, web site and social media outlets. An early social media adopter, the Montreal branch of the ICCC manages the lively ICCC LinkedIn group for all of Canada and also has an active Twitter account.

The ICCC organises corporate presentations/ product showcase evenings on behalf of corporate members. These allow members of the chamber and of the Irish community to familiarize themselves with the corporate member’s business ventures.

Irish Community Events

Each year, the chamber organises a Tourism Ireland evening for media and the Irish community. For more information on the successful evenings, refer to the press room clippings in the Media menu.

In addition to its proprietary events, the ICCC serves as a conduit for selected activities that may interest the broader Irish community. Jointly hosted activities include a ConnectIreland evening, where attendees were encouraged to support job creation in Ireland through their global connections.

An organisation devoted to promoting partnerships and making connections, the chamber is a staunch supporter of the Irish Immigrant Integration Initiative (IIII) in Montreal. The initiative, which is funded by the St. Patrick’s Society of Montreal and by the government of Ireland, has the aim of helping newly arrived Irish immigrants create local networks and receive a strong community helping hand in their job search and integration efforts.

Influence

The ICCC advocates on topics relating to improving Ireland-Canada business conditions, and making commercial connections between both countries.
