Our Role

The Italian Trade Commission:
serving businesses and ambassadors of all that is Made in Italy!

First, we should mention that Italian Trade Commissions (ITCs) are the foreign representatives of the ICE (Istituto nazionale per il Commercio Estero) - The Italian Institue for Foreign Trade - whose head office is located in Rome. In keeping with their mother organization, it is therefore their mission to facilitate and develop business trades, encourage industrial and technical collaboration, and circulate information of an economic nature among Italy and the rest of the world.

At the same time, the focus is undeniably on the promotion of agri-food products in general and on products that enjoy the DOP (denominazione di origine protteta) - Protected Denomination of Origin appellation—these being true ambassadors of Italian gastronomical know-how.

The ITC therefore organizes numerous events with the active participation of Italian and Canadian partners in an effort to promote all of Italy’s specialties, and encourage business relationships between the two countries. These promotional-event services are actually provided by the ITC free of charge to Italian businesses wishing to increase their visibility on the market and develop business relationships.
