1        Introduction
It is important to note that at CanCham we are here to try to provide opportunities for networking, encouraging international trade and business partners to collaborate on specific and mutually beneficial projects.
It is important that all members take as much advantage of the CanCham facilities and services made available although some of this is dependent on up-to-date and accurate contact information. It is also considered that CanCham members will benefit from publicity and promotion based on materials and information provided directly from our members.
This material is primarily intended as guide to sections of the CanCham website and related CanCham social media websites where members can advertise and promote their business. In all cases CanCham needs members to provide up to date contact, trading and service information in order that business benefits can be realised.
