    Our Netherlands Meets Canada Event, live from the RVO Studio on 2nd September 2021 was a great success.

    Hosted by our Chair, Sandra Brandenburg, viewers got to meet the new Senior Trade Commissioner, Adam Barbolet, bid farewell to his predecessor Sameena Qureshi, listen to the new Consul General in Toronto, Harman Idema, and receive greetings from Henk Soeken, Consul General in Vancouver and Ambassador Coppoolse in Ottawa. Alwin Quispel from Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) talked about business between the two countries and cultural topics were covered by  Julie Allen who showed the work of Faces to Graves and Mart Smeets presented his new book 'Oh Canada'.

    Veerle Driessen told us about the new exhibit 'Magnetic North' at the Kunsthal Rotterdam, which showcases the work of 'The Group of Seven'. Following an online competition, guests Natalie, Else and Rob won two free tickets each to the exhibition.

    Mr Smeets thoughts on Canada are alone worth watching; and the broader program provided a great overview of Canadian-Dutch commercial relations.

    On Monday, 3rd May 2021, Her Royal Highness, Princess Margriet, Her Excellency, Canadian Ambassador Lisa Helfand and the Mayor of Berg an Dal, Mark Slinkman, visited Groesbeek Canadian War Cemetery.

    The Stichting 'Faces to Graves' organised a photo exhibition 'The Faces of Groesbeek'.  This photo exhibition, originally planned for the Dutch Liberation 75th anniversary events last year, aims to put a face to every name at the cemetery. The exhibition will run from the 6th till 17th May, 2021.

    The project was made possible with the help of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, the Municipality of Berg en Dal and many sponsors.


    Groesbeek Canadian War Cemetery was built by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. The CWGC honours and cares for the men and women of the Commonwealth forces who died in the First and Second World Wars, ensuring that their 'lives liveth for evermore' and they will never be forgotten.

    On Tuesday, March 30, 2021, the International Bi-Lateral Chambers in the Netherlands, NLinBusiness and the NL Business Hub network organised a webinar about the global impact of the Dutch elections.

    Over 500 people from all over the world tuned in to hear from various speakers who shared their views on the outcome of the recent elections in the Netherlands. They discussed its impact on international business, challenges the Dutch government faces moving forward and the most important factors that influence and drive the political priorities of the Netherlands. 

    This is the first time that we have organised such a big event together. It was very well received and we will strive to do more of these events in the future.

    Canada - Mandatory COVID-19 testing

    To be allowed to board a flight to Canada, all air passengers 5 years of age or older, including Canadians, are required to show a negative COVID-19 molecular test result taken within 72 hours prior to boarding their scheduled departure to Canada or a positive COVID-19 molecular test taken between 14 and 90 days prior to departure.

    Further, effective midnight (11:59 PM EST) February 3, 2021, in addition to proof of a negative pre-departure test, Transport Canada will expand the existing international flight restrictions which funnel scheduled international commercial passenger flights into four Canadian airports: Montréal-Trudeau International Airport, Toronto Pearson International Airport, Calgary International Airport, and Vancouver International Airport. The new restrictions will include scheduled commercial passenger flights arriving from the United States, Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean and South America, which were exempted from the previous restriction. Private/Business and charter flights from all countries will also be required to land at the four airports. Flights from Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon and cargo-only flights will remain exempt.

    As soon as possible in the coming weeks, all air travellers arriving in Canada, with very limited exceptions, must reserve a room in a Government of Canada-approved hotel for three nights at their own cost, and take a COVID-19 molecular test on arrival at their own cost. More details will be available in the coming days.

    On November 26th, 2020, our Annual Luncheon should have taken place. Unfortunately, due to current Covid 19 restrictions, that was not possible. Instead, our Netherlands located members received a hand delivered gift package containing Canadian goodies to enjoy in the comfort of their home.

    It also marked the kick-off of our new monthly Lightning Talks - short presentations of various topics of interest to our members. We began with a welcome from our Chair, Sandra Brandenburg, followed by some reflections of the past year from the Canadian Ambassador to the Netherlands, Lisa Helfand. Two presentations followed. The first was from Martin Reelick, President of RCL 005, who told us about the work of the Royal Canadian Legion in the Netherlands.

    NCCC member Michael Henry, of Houser Henry & Syron LLP, discussed the results of their 2020 mid-market report and the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on mid-sized businesses.

    Jan Westra of Priva also shared information about a project partly funded by the Provence of Zuid Holland and Greenport NL. The project (only available in Dutch), looks at 4 scenarios of what the future might look like 10 years after the global pandemic.


    Our next event will take place on Friday, 11th December at 16.00
