Open Border - Hidden Risks
Canada and the United States share one of the most unobstructed borders in the world. Many companies and families are active on both sides of the 49th parallel- establishing businesses, buying properties and planning for the future
Our speakers will discuss many of the factors families and businesses should consider to keep their cross-border activities risk-free.
This seminar is for accountants, business owners, managers, financial advisors and bankers.
