Who We Are
The Italian Chamber of Commerce of Ontario (ICCO) is a non-profit business organization whose main objective is to promote business development within Canadian and Italian companies. We believe that a stronger relationship between the two countries will create more opportunities for investment, and that the Italian Canadian community can be the springboard for a partnership, where business and cultural exchange can drive growth. It is ICCO’s mission to provide services to the Canadian companies that want to know a creative and profitable market like Italy, and to the Italian companies that want to come to a strong, stable, and receptive market like Canada.
The Italian Chamber of Commerce of Ontario offers a number of fee-based services for both members and non-members. Our staff are experts in performing market research, matching companies to potential partners overseas, and developing communication strategies.

Italy is home to some of the oldest wine-producing regions in the world, and Italian wines are known worldwide for their broad variety. Italy, closely followed by France, is the world’s largest wine producer by volume.
The ICCO Wine Desk is the new program of the Italian Chamber of Commerce with the specific mandate of promoting Italian wines in Canada.
Italian cuisine must be considered a contribution to the world heritage and has to be defended and protected against adulteration and falsification to preserve the history, culture, quality and authenticity.
Marchio Ospitalitá represents a communication campaign designed to promote quality Italian cuisine and present the Italian “agri-food” extended production model, exemplifying the talent and tradition that goes towards the Made In Italy concept.
The Extraordinary Italian Taste
ICCO will continue to promote authentic Italian food in Ontario throughout 2017.
We will be organizing educational tours, Master classes, food symposiums and other exciting initiatives both in Italy and in Canada.
Recognizing authentic Italian products and processing and preparing them to enhance their best qualities are among this project’s goals.
