September 2016 – Omnicon’s Trade Mission to Canada

On September 7-9, 2016, The Omnicon Group was honored to be one of a select group of New York companies selected to participate in Global NY’s Trade Mission to Ottawa, Canada. Karen J. Frank, Vice President, represented Omnicon during this mission meeting with government officials and organizations in industries such as aerospace, defense and security, renewable energy and medical devices. 

Not only did this trade mission open the door for new business ventures between Omnicon and Canadian companies, but it also created new business opportunities for other companies located in New York. We continue to serve our global client base and welcome the chance to collaborate with potential customers in Canada and beyond. 


The culmination of this two-day trade mission was a reception at the United States Embassy in Ottawa, hosted by U.S. Ambassador Bruce Heyman. The Lieutenant Governor of New York State, Kathy Hochul, delivered an inspirational speech further endorsing the importance and benefits of U.S.-Canada relations. 

Did you know: almost 400 thousand people and $2 billion worth of good/services cross the United States/Canada border every day? Our deeply integrated economies have led to the largest mutual trade and investment relationship in the world. 

This Global NY Trade Mission was sponsored in part through a cooperative agreement with Global NY and the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) through Empire State Development (ESD). 

Global NY is New York State’s global connection and international business resource aiming to help local companies export their products/services while attracting more foreign direct investment (FDI) into the state. Global NY has offices in Toronto, Montreal, the United Kingdom, Israel, South Africa, China, and Mexico, as well as New York. 

ESD is New York State’s center for economic development, committed to making New York the most attractive place in which to live, work, and conduct business. ESD works in partnership with both private and public sectors to create an attention-grabbing environment to stimulate innovation and economic development.
