The NECBC posts on this page news story excerpts related to member activities and U.S./Canada relations.  Be sure to check back for updates.

The NECBC also has a periodic newsletter, called "Connections", which reports on Council activities and provides information on Canada, the provinces, and cross-border trade and investment trends.  It informs readers of business opportunities, upcoming events, and activities of other Council members.  Past editions are posted in this section.
















The NECBC holds events throughout the year featuring distinguished speakers. In mid-November 2018, the NECBC was pleased to co-present a program with the New England Council in Boston, for remarks by Quebec's Premier Francois Legault. Check our Speaker Programs page for a listing of upcoming events in 2019.
