Our approach to events

At FinDev Canada, we adopt a versatile approach to events, where we focus on fostering knowledge sharing in key areas, including development finance, blended finance, climate action encompassing sustainable infrastructure and nature-based solutions, women's economic empowerment, market development, and more. We also provide business insights through real-life client examples within our portfolio. These events create a unique space for connecting with industry peers who share our commitment, enabling us to fortify existing relationships and explore potential partnerships. Beyond networking, these gatherings align with our mandate to support development through the private sector by catalyzing meaningful conversations into actionable change.

“We have all heard the phrase: ‘We will not reach net zero if we are not nature positive.’ And that’s because climate and nature are two sides of the same coin, and so they must be tackled – or, perhaps better said – attacked – together.”

– Lori Kerr, FinDev Canada CEO at the Seventh GEF Assembly
