FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Partnership to strengthen business opportunities for
The Toronto Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (THCC) and the Canadian Aboriginal and Minority Supplier Council (CAMSC), will be signing a memorandum of understanding prior to the 2013 THCC Vision Showcase Awards on October 10th at 5:15pm at the AGO. The understanding will see the two organizations work closely in pursuit of the goal of introducing Hispanic-owned companies into the supply chain of major corporations in Canada and the U.S.
Jacob Moshinsky, signing on behalf of THCC said “that Latin Americans now represent 6% of Canada’s visible minority population and more than 500 Latin American owned businesses are operating in the Toronto region. As the Hispanic population increases, more and more members are choosing to start their own businesses, and since CAMSC has proven to be the link between corporate Canada and aboriginal and minority suppliers, it makes sense to fully engage with CAMSC and collaborate on projects of mutual interest.”
“Aboriginal and minority suppliers represent an emerging source of competitive and innovative suppliers” said Cassandra Dorrington, President of CAMSC. “We welcome the opportunity to work more closely with Hispanic owned businesses, as CAMSC corporate members are actively seeking to include competitive suppliers that are representative of their changing customer base and their communities in which they operate”.
