Initiafy, a client of Enterprise Ireland in Canada was invited to attend a breakfast meeting to commemorate the trade partnerships between Canada and Ireland. What’s exciting is that many of these companies, including Initiafy have created strong roots in Canada, and we can expect them to grow exponentially in the coming months!
Initiafy is a SaaS (Software as a Service) company that specializes in helping large organizations in many industries such as construction, oil/gas and mining. Initiafy helps these companies easily on-board and train their new contractors and employees. The software company is expanding in several global markets, including Canada. Initiafy has proven to cut costs by more than 75% and simultaneously reduce the number of accidents and loss time injuries in the workplace.
Representing Initiafy, Kevin Mathiasz, Initiafy’s business development manager, had a one-on-one meeting with the Irish ambassador to Canada, Mr. Jim Kelly and Irish Minister, Eoghan Murphy. Together, they discussed Initiafy’s progress, constant development and how the company is continuing to expand in the Canadian market.
With an office in Toronto since 2007, Enterprise Ireland views Canada as a highly accessible market of opportunity for Irish exports. The Canadian economy shows strong and stable rates of growth, and Irish firms should seek to benefit from the expanded trade opportunities presented through the recent CETA agreement between Canada and the EU.
That’s why Enterprise Ireland is pleased to host a Trade Mission to Toronto and Ottawa this coming May, led by Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Mary Mitchell O Connor. Joining us will be a delegation of highly ambitious Irish companies from a variety of sectors, all seeking to grow their business in Canada.
