SANTIAGO, CHILE -- (Marketwired) -- 03/11/14 -- Canada Revenue Agency
The Honourable Kerry-Lynne D. Findlay, P.C., Q.C., M.P., Minister of National Revenue, today attended the inauguration of the Chilean President Michelle Bachelet in Valparaiso. Minister Findlay was accompanied by Canada's Ambassador to the Republic of Chile, Ms. Patricia Fuller.
For more than 70 years, Canada and Chile have shared diplomatic, economic, and cultural ties. Last May, the outgoing President Sebastian Pinera was in Ottawa to sign the renewal of the Canada-Chile Strategic Partnership Framework. With emphasis on trade liberalization and support for various sectors, the two countries have opened new markets, creating new opportunities for businesses and jobs in both Canada and Chile.
While in Chile, Minister Findlay met with Mr. David Baril, President of the Chile-Canada Chamber of Commerce and Vice-President of Operations for Teck Resources Limited, and Mr. Andres Kuhlmann, also a member of the Chile-Canada Chamber of Commerce and General Manager of Transelec S.A. Discussions focused on current Canadian business activities in Chile, the country's current economic environment, and future opportunities for the Canadian business market.
Minister Findlay also met with key members of the incoming Chilean government, including President Michelle Bachelet, Foreign Affairs Minister Heraldo Munoz, and Minister of Finance Alberto Arenas. On behalf of the Canadian government and Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Minister Findlay thanked outgoing President Sebastian Pinera and Foreign Minister Alfredo Moreno for their strong partnership with Canada.
-- The Canada-Chile Free Trade Agreement (CCFTA) is the cornerstone of Canada's strong and growing trade and investment relationship with Chile. Since it came into force in 1997, two-way merchandise trade has more than tripled and Canada has become the largest source of new direct investment in Chile. Efforts to modernize and broaden the CCFTA are ongoing. -- Through our Strategy for Engagement in the Americas, Canada is closely working with partners towards three goals: to create economic opportunity and increase mutual prosperity; to address insecurity and advance freedom, democracy, human rights and the rule of law through capacity building; and to foster lasting relationships with our neighbours. -- The Chile-Canada Chamber of Commerce promotes the development of trade relations between Canada and Chile, helps to protect Canadian and Chilean commercial interests, assists partners in their commercial activities, and maintains relationships with other national and international organizations engaged in similar activities in Chile and abroad. -- The Chile-Canada Chamber of Commerce currently has 125 member companies, including Canadian companies established in Chile, Chilean companies linked to Canada, and other international firms and services.
"We place great value on our collaborative relationship with Chile as a key strategic partner for Canada in the Americas, and we are pleased to have such an open, stable, strong and like-minded trade and investment partner in the region. Canada's relationship with Chile is important to our government and to the many Canadians who do business here."
The Honourable Kerry-Lynne D. Findlay, P.C., Q.C., M.P., Minister of National Revenue
"We look forward to working with President Bachelet's government to foster an environment that will continue to create jobs and economic opportunities in both Canada and Chile."

IoT generates lots of temporal data. But how do you unlock its value? You need to discover patterns that are repeatable in vast quantities of data, understand their meaning, and implement scalable monitoring across multiple data streams in order to monetize the discoveries and insights. Motif discovery and deep learning platforms are emerging to visualize sensor data, to search for patterns and to build application that can monitor real time streams efficiently. In his session at @ThingsExpo, ...

Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M. This is understandable since a prerequisite for any IoT solution is the ability to collect and aggregate device data, which is most often presented in a dashboard. The problem is that viewing data in a dashboard requires a human to interpret the results and take manual action, which doesn’t scale to the needs of IoT.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee...

Much of IT terminology is often misused and misapplied. Modernization and transformation are two such terms. They are often used interchangeably even though they mean different things and have very different connotations. Indeed, it is somewhat safe to assume that in IT any transformative effort is likely to also have a modernizing effect, and thus, we can see these as levels of improvement efforts. However, many businesses are being led to believe if they don’t transform now they risk becoming ...
