Welcome the Saskatchewan Province – Germany Office into the fold of the PCCC


We are thrilled to welcome the Germany Office of Saskatchewan Province into the fold of the Polish Canadian Chamber of Commerce. The Provincial Office representing the interests of Saskatchewan in Europe, joins the PCCC with a shared commitment to promoting economic growth.

Canadian Saskatchewan Province, one of the prairie provinces, has a wealth of such resources as agriculture, forestry, oil and critical minerals. The province is also a technological leader in crop science, vaccine and plant protein research, agricultural equipment and clean energy.

Saskatchewan exports nearly 70% of what it produces and is committed to doubling the value of provincial exports by 2030. Saskatchewan is the world’s leading exporter of lentils, peas, canola, flax, oats and durum wheat. The province is the world’s top producer of potash and a major supplier of uranium, with unrealized potential in diamonds, base metals and precious metals.

Saskatchewan Germany Office, one of nine international offices serve to advance Saskatchewan’s growth mandate and support provincial interests by strengthening and leveraging strategic partnerships internationally, and coordinate on behalf of government partners to achieve Saskatchewan’s Growth Plan targets. Office provides exporters and investors with increased support to further navigate business opportunities and increase trade.

The PCCC looks forward to the numerous opportunities that will arise from this partnership, including networking events, trade missions, and cultural exchanges between Polish, Canadian and German communities.

In Memoriam | Dr. Stanislaw (Stan) Borkowski, MBA

The Board, Audit Committee, Advisory Council and Membership of the Polish Canadian Chamber of Commerce (PCCC) announce in deep sadness, with sincere sympathies to his family, the recent passing of our dear and trusted friend and colleague, Dr. Stan Borkowski.

Having quietly and bravely fought a recurring illness for many years, Stan invariably showed his strong side, and was always there for us, in both good times and bad. He was one of those special human beings of great knowledge and authority whom many of us turned to when we had a burning question or complex issue to discuss; and Stan would always take the time to help us and work things through with patience and respect.

Stan was an active member not only of our Canadian community and the long-time head of our Audit Committee at the PCCC, but held leading and influential positions at numerous large corporations, banks and insurance companies both on the management and supervisory boards, well-respected and revered in many professional and charity circles in both Poland and beyond. At the same time, he was a caring husband, father, friend and all-round family man.

Our personal and professional friendships with Stan – together with our circle of friends and family – have lasted over the years, having become part of the foundation of our international community here in Warsaw.

Now, with Stan having departed this world, we would like to take a moment to reflect on the blessing of his having been amongst us, and together wish him eternal rest and peace.
