IE Alumni in Canada – Summer gathering

Escrito el 1 septiembre 2013 por Alumni en Business Networking, Geographic

A cheerful group of approximately 40 IE alumni gathered at the beginning of the month for a networking event at the Beverly Hotel rooftop, downtown Toronto. The mood of the IE alumni from different programs and intakes that evening was as warm as the unusual high temperatures for the season in the city.

Over the past couple of years, the interest of Canadian nationals and residents to pursue a program at IE has been growing fast. The mix of top-notch education, diversity and a sunny studying environment that IE offers  is the perfect combination for young and experience professionals.  As many of them are immigrants themselves or second generation of immigrants they are keen on studying abroad and Spain is an attractive destination for many of them. 

Canada and its open immigration policies for decades now – targeting to attract high-skilled professionals – has  also been an important market for IE Alumni looking for challenging and well-paid jobs. “I have been working and living here in Toronto for several of years and I couldn’t have been happier”, says Ana Perez, an IMBA Graduate, who is now working at Celestica.

On 3rd April, we had the opportunity to
know about Canada from the Spanish Ambassador, Mariano Alonso-Burón.

Canada is a country particularly blessed
for its geography and natural resources. It has the second largest petroleum
reserves around the globe and is also rich in Gold and Uranium. In addition, at
a time where water is of great importance, Canada counts on the largest fresh
water reserves worldwide.

Canada is a diverse, multiethnic
country, having great German, Italian and Greek influence for over two hundred
years. Its geographic location facilitates its commercial interchange with the
United States (around 80%). Greater commercial relations existing North-South,
with the United States, than East-West, are indeed due to the great extension
of the country. Extension that has lead to great decentralization, is enough to
indicate that provinces execute 90% of the national budget.

In spite of its close relations with
the US (80% of the population is concentrated within 100 km north of the
border), Canada is increasing its relations with the European Union in a
sustained manner. We find ourselves on the eve of a great agreement that will create
a model of association with the EU. An agreement that will facilitate the
exchange of products and services, also with Spain. At present, the Spanish exports
to Canada are centered on infrastructure and services (plants of Aeolian
energy, development of large infrastructures, privatization of Canadian Social
Security, concessions of freeways), while the imports are mainly based on
energy (petroleum and derivatives) and aeronautics.

El pasado día 3 de abril tuvimos la
oportunidad de conocer la realidad de Canadá, de la mano del embajador español,
Mariano Alonso-Burón.

Canadá es un país particularmente
condicionado por su geografía y sus recursos naturales. Es el segundo mayor
país del mundo en extensión y cuenta con las segundas mayores reservas de
petróleo del globo. También es un país rico en oro y uranio. Además, en un
momento en el que el agua cobra cada vez una mayor importancia, Canadá cuenta
con las mayores reservas mundiales de agua dulce.

Canadá es un país diverso, multiétnico,
con una gran influencia alemana, italiana y griega, desde hace algo más de
doscientos años. La situación geográfica facilita el intercambio comercial con
los Estados Unidos (alrededor del 80%). Existen incluso mayores relaciones
comerciales norte-sur -con Estados Unidos- que este-oeste, debido precisamente
a la gran extensión del país. Extensión que ha generado una gran
descentralización, baste señalar que el 90% de la ejecución del presupuesto
nacional la realizan las provincias.

A pesar de la estrecha relación con los
Estados Unidos (el 80% de la población se concentra en 100 km al norte de la
frontera), Canadá está incrementando, de manera sostenida, sus relaciones con
la Unión Europea. Nos encontramos en los prolegómenos de un gran acuerdo marco
que consagrará un modelo de asociación con la UE. Acuerdo que facilitará el
intercambio de productos y servicios, también con España. En la actualidad, las
exportaciones españolas a Canadá se centran en infraestructura y servicios
(plantas de energía eólica, desarrollo de grandes infraestructuras,
privatización de la seguridad social canadiense, concesiones de autopistas),
mientras que las importaciones son mayoritariamente energéticas (petróleo y
derivados) y aeronáuticas.
