Canadian Jordanian Chamber Of Commerce
It is with great pleasure to announce the establishment of the Canadian Jordanian Chamber of Commerce (CJCC) in Amman-Jordan, which would stand as the largest commercial collation between Jordan and Canada, as it aims to enforce ties between Jordan and Canada in fields of business, commercial joint ventures, employment, and education.
The Canadian Jordanian Chamber of Commerce aims to strengthen economic ties and enrich bilateral relations between Jordan and Canada, by providing investment information and facilitating all forms of communication for business and economic activities to support Jordanian- Canadian social and business relations.
The main motivation behind establishing such a Chamber is to increase the commercial volume between Jordan and Canada, as well as establishing a connection between CJCC and Canadian Chambers of Commerce in order to obtain promotional information related to the most important goods, exchange events addressing trade & industry, intercultural exchange, and awareness campaigns in Canada.
CJCC also aims to collaborate with Chambers of Commerce in Canada to jointly arrange conferences and symposiums in both Jordan and Canada to promote investment in Jordan. We will establish a periodical newsletter in order to cover important activities and events set to be held annually.
Our mission is to support Canadian businesses in Jordan by helping them to develop their networks and marketing opportunities as well as to cultivate a thriving Canadian community in Jordan.
We appreciate any suggestions or advices you may provide us, as you are well experienced in this filed, that we support Canada.
In accordance with that you are kindly requested to provide us with your training courses, latest activities and any other programs of yours for our CJCC staff development.

While the precise timing of these changes remains unannounced, they are scheduled to occur during the 2014-15 programme year.
Yesterday’s announcement highlighted the below key changes:
The DIBP has indicated that the changes relating to the Significant Investor visa will not apply to current holders of the visa or current applications processing with the Department.
The Subclass 188 visa was introduced by the Australian Government in November 2012 in an effort to attract foreign investment into Australia. The Significant Investor stream was created within this subclass requiring a minimum investment of AUD5 million into a complying investment for four years. With minimal residence requirements and no points test, this has been an attractive option for high net worth individuals. Currently, the visa requires the primary applicant to be present in Australia for a minimum of 160 days (cumulatively) during the course of the four year visa term and to also maintain the investment in order to then qualify for permanent residence.
