We’ve got another big event coming up on June 12th (see below) but first a wee look back at what’s been happening…

Tartan Day

It’s been a busy time for the ScotCanBC members as we held our Tartan Day gathering, our third event of our 2018-19 membership year, at the Devil’s Elbow Ale and Smoke House in downtown Vancouver on April 4.

Our guest speaker at this event was Frank Flood, Irish Consul-General, who gave a brief talk on international and local issues, including the importance of trade and investment between Scotland, Ireland and Canada and the Irish perspective on Brexit.

It was a great evening and we were delighted to welcome both returning and new ScotCanBC members.

Haggis

Next on the agenda was a dinner with James Macsween (MacSween Haggis),Ronan O’Neill (Fresh Concept), Gareth Withers (ScotCanBC) and Tricia Barker (ScotCanBC).

Discussions centered around the success around introducing one of Scotland’s most famous products to Canada, following the lifting of the haggis ban and future trade opportunities for both meat and vegetarian haggis in BC and beyond. James MacSween also shared some interesting new ideas on how we can all enjoy Macsween’s haggis! More details are available in the link below:
