On June 18, Canada’s LGBT+ Chamber of Commerce hosted a members-only CGLCC Connects: Fireside Chat with The Honourable Erin O’Toole – leader of Canada’s Conservatives.

During the 45-minute discussion, CGLCC Chief Operating Officer Dale McDermott and Mr. O’Toole explored a variety of topics – including COVID-19 economic recovery, supplier diversity, and inclusive Trade.
