Free Webinar: Best Practices from the Canadian Multicultural Market: What U.S. Brand Marketers Can Learn, Feb 13, 2PM EST
 
The face of America is changing and multicultural consumers are quickly becoming the majority of future growth in the U.S. While multicultural marketing in the U.S. is significantly focused on the Hispanic and African-American consumers, the Chinese and South Asian populations are also booming today and US marketers need to understand the opportunities and challenges. As such, we can look to Canada for inspiration. Why Canada? Canada will be welcoming over 1 million new immigrants in the next 3 years alone. By the year 2036, Canada's multicultural consumers will represent 34% of the population and according to Statistics Canada, other urban centers across the country can reach over 80% with South Asians and Chinese quickly becoming the "visible majority". Where else in the world can you catch a Punjabi ice hockey game while sipping a Matcha green tea latte and relishing a plate of butter chicken poutine? Only in CANADA!
 
Join us for an informative webinar with Canadian Multicultural Marketing veterans who will share key insights and opportunities relevant for the U.S. market, along with examples and learnings gained by marketing to the Chinese and South Asian consumers in Canada.
