iNua were delighted to support An Evening with David McWilliams, hosted by Ireland Park Foundation, as 150 guests were entertained by an insightful two hour discussion in the O.I.S.E Auditorium, Toronto.
Eamon Ryan, iNua Corporate Advisor & Head of Strategy (pictured above), joined Mr McWilliams and Globe & Mail Editor, David Walmsley to discuss all things Irish, Canadian and economics on the same night that Canada’s Liberal leader Justin Trudeau was elected Prime Minister following a late surge, toppling the Conservative Party that had been in power for the previous nine years.

The group discussed Toronto as one of the largest and oldest Irish diasporas around the world (14% of Canada’s population is either full or partial Irish descent).
Trade between Canada and Ireland was also a part of the evening’s agenda, highlighting the fact that 500 Irish companies operate in Canada (25% of all Irish investment abroad is in Canada).
