The trade mission to London will take place from June 24 to July 1. Minister Jones will meet with leaders from the U.K.’s business and investment community to promote Alberta as a beneficial trade partner, desirable destination to invest and a great place to live and work.

Alberta’s government continues to work with the U.K. to create new opportunities for our province across various sectors including technology, energy, aerospace and hospitality. Minister Jones will participate in the Canada–U.K. Business Summit and London’s ‘Canada Day London’ celebrations with Alberta as the featured province for 2024.

“Alberta’s government is taking action to make sure our province continues to attract new international investment and create more opportunities for Albertans. This mission is part of our ongoing work to promote Alberta as the most investment-friendly jurisdiction in Canada. On this trade mission, I look forward to advancing our province’s shared interests with London and the United Kingdom.”
