Aug. 29 Showcase of Global Engineers

Looking for top engineering talent to grow your business? Interested in entering new markets on the international stage? Then register now to attend a FREE event organized by the Hamilton Chamber of Commerce through our Diversity Works program.

The Passport to Engineering Showcase takes place on Wednesday August 29 from 3 pm to 5 pm at the Waterfront Banquet Centre, 555 Bay Street North, Hamilton.

The event will highlight the skills and accomplishments of internationally trained engineers available in our community. We have assembled a panel of engineers representative of Hamilton’s rich diversity. Each panelist will present a brief slide show that samples key projects from his/her international work portfolio. The panel will be moderated by Mr. Tarif Korabi, retired vice president, Hatch Ltd. and a past board member of the Hamilton Chamber.

The panelists are:

  • Jamal Beitelmal, PhD, Newcastle University, UK – a civil engineer from Libya
  • Amani Alfarra, PhD, Karlsruhe University, Germany – a water resource engineer from Jordan
  • Mahmood Al-Imam, PhD, Kebangsaan University, Malaysia – a control systems engineer from Libya 
  • Ming Pei, PhD, Beijing University, China - a mechanical engineer from China
  • Senthivel Rama Krishnan, PhD, India Institute of Technology, India – a civil engineer from India


Our aim is to promote access to global experience in Hamilton — engineering talent that is ready, willing and able to contribute to our economy.

The program will also include information on the accreditation process for internationally trained engineers and an invitation to join a new advisory committee to help facilitate the integration of newcomer engineers into the local workforce.

The event will close with an informal networking reception — an opportunity to meet our presenters and global talent. Complimentary refreshments will be served. 

All attendees will be eligible to WIN a one year FREE membership with the Hamilton Chamber of Commerce.

13 Aug Digital Media Firms Champion Collaboration

Creative industries, led by culture and entertainment, are a major economic driver worldwide.

In Hamilton, we’re gaining a share of this growing international market while taking care of business on the local front.

At this year’s Hamilton Economic Summit — an initiative of the Hamilton Chamber of Commerce — we held a panel focused on moving our local creative industries sector to the next level.

Among the takeaways was an agreement on the need to strengthen and promote local assets that appeal to creative industries, including broadband connectivity, access to skilled talent, a vibrant downtown, affordable building stock, and municipal supports.

The Hamilton Chamber is helping to tackle this to-do list at multiple levels — through our Innovation Technology Committee, community partnerships with the City of Hamilton and others, and various leadership events.

On August 10, for example, we hosted a post-summit Coffee with the CEO and Guests event to discuss business challenges commonly faced by local digital media companies.  The panelists were Juan Lopez (co-founder of Pipeline Studios), Rob DePetris (senior manager, tax at KPMG and former vice president at Silicon Knights) and Jacqueline Norton (business development consultant, City of Hamilton).

Three current challenges rose to the top:

1.      The need to help local digital media firms identify and secure suitable financial incentives targeting their industry.
2.      The need to access additional low cost storage and rendering capacity.
3.      The need to differentiate Hamilton’s strengths as a digital media centre from other similar centres across Ontario — why duplicate local services when we can specialize?
The interactive conversation closed with a call for greater collaboration — locally and beyond — to address these and other priority actions.
The Chamber will continue to help, particularly by fostering a strong and stable local business environment for digital media firms and creative industries as a whole.
