Twenty leading Canadian infrastructure companies will be visiting India to explore partnerships with local companies. The delegation will be in Mumbai, Jaipur and New Delhi from 7 to 11 December 2015.

During their stay, the Canadian companies’ representatives will conduct meetings with business leaders and government interlocutors, and look at opportunities to support India’s infrastructure development.

The delegation will participate in Municipalika 2015 where His Excellency Nadir Patel, High Commissioner for Canada to India, will be a key note speaker at the inaugural event. Canada is a Country Partner at Municipalika 2015 and will be jointly represented by the Government of Canada, Export Development Canada (EDC) and the Canadian Province of Ontario.

Speaking about Canada’s infrastructure expertise and its potential to contribute to India’s urban development plans, High Commissioner Patel said: “Canadian companies are innovative and offer the highest levels of service and quality. Whether it be products and services related to sanitation, water, architecture and design, or intelligent transport systems, Canadian companies can deliver exceptional quality. Already, several Canadian companies are actively engaged in India’s urban infrastructure space including city development and planning, designing world class buildings, installing state of the art water and sanitation systems, or lighting India’s railway stations with LED systems”.

Companies participating in the delegation:
Clearford Water Systems, Nuworld - MMC Ontario, Premier Tech Aqua, Forrec , LED Roadway Lighting, Golder Associates, AB Embedded Systems, Bombardier, Air Canada Cargo, IBI Group, RWDI, Westport, E&Y Canada, Cerco Cables  and Sentinel waste.

Canada’s excellence in infrastructure:
Infrastructure projects and services are one of Canada’s most important industries. Canada is the world’s 4th largest exporter of engineering services, while Canadian architects, designers and project managers are known for their creativity and ability to innovate. Canadian firms are recognized for their high-level project management;, specialized technical skills and for developing environmentally friendly technological solutions that combine innovative design with high quality. While some Canadian companies participating in the mission already have a foothold in India, others are exploring the Indian market for the first time.
