Atlantic Canadian businesses have been successfully participating in the Caribbean Renewable Energy Forum (CREF) for over a decade. In fall of 2022 a successful trade mission was organized to CREF where 8 companies participated. In an effort to maintain the business relationships forged during this mission, the Environmental Services Association of the Maritimes (the Association), in partnership with The Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA), will host an in-person trade mission again to attend CREF in Miami, Florida, from April 25-28, 2023.
