On Thursday, June 6, the Toronto Stock Exchange and TSX Venture Exchange hosted a networking reception that featured a formal agreement between the Canadian government and UCI Applied Innovation at the Cove @ UCI.

“Today is an example of what the Canada-U.S. relationship looks like,” said James Villeneuve, consul general of Canada. “It’s a two-way exchange of sharing knowledge with each other to accelerate the pace of discovery collaboration and breakthroughs from the lab to the marketplace.”

The agreement fosters collaboration between both the United States and Canada, which covers the following:

  • Promoting Canadian organizations that can benefit startups and organizations at the Cove
  • Creating a bridge for Canadian startups to be in Orange County
  • Access to the larger Orange County startup ecosystem
  • Creating a bridge for companies at the Cove to access Canada’s resources

The presentation concluded with Kate Klimow, chief administrative officer/director of external relations at Applied Innovation, and Villeneuve signing the memorandum of understanding, a formal agreement of cooperation, which was presented by the TMX Group–the parent company of the exchanges.
