The PRI has identified the Canadian market as one of its focus areas, with particular attention on the financial centres of Vancouver (British Colombia), Montreal (Quebec) and Toronto (Ontario). The Canada Network is serviced by the PRI Secretariat based in London. All signatories with offices in Canada are invited to participate in the Network’s activities.
The PRI has budgeted for one signatory meeting to be held in Canada per financial year, to rotate between the west and east coasts.
Details of meetings planned for the 2013/14 and 2014/15 fiscal years can be found below:
