OTTAWA, Ontario – Governor Brian Sandoval today kicked off a trade mission with the Governor’s Office of Economic Development to Canada with meetings scheduled in Ottawa and Toronto.

The trade mission includes a reception for the Nevada businesses in attendance to network with Canadian companies to enhance export opportunities.

GOED and representatives from the University of Nevada Las Vegas, the Desert Research Institute, and the University of Nevada Reno will hold a conference for targeted Canadian companies to highlight Nevada’s leadership in the Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) industry and to attract interested companies to Nevada’s FAA UAS Test Sites. The State’s Project Management Office for the Test Sites is also attending the conference.

“Increasing Nevada’s trade opportunities is a critical component to our efforts to grow jobs and diversify our economy,” Sandoval said. “Canada is Nevada’s third largest trade partner, and there is tremendous opportunity to build upon our already strong relationship. I look forward to a productive trade mission.”

The schedule for the Governor and GOED includes meetings with the Aerospace Industries Association of Canada, the United States Ambassador to Canada Bruce Heyman, members of Parliament, Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne, Barrick Gold, Fasken Martineau Law Firm, and a tour of the MaRS Innovation Centre.

“As a state, we see tremendous economic development potential in the areas of Unmanned Aerial Systems, water technology, and indoor agriculture and Canada can be a real partner for Nevada as we further develop these emerging industries in addition to the continued development of Nevada’s mining industry,” said Steve Hill, Director of the Governor’s Office of Economic Development.
