SAVE THE DATE: JN Expo Bigger and Better for 2018

Fri 29 Dec, 2017

It was a packed house at the Pearson Convention Centre in Brampton, Canada as the JN Group hosted its inaugural staging of the Jamaica National Expo on Saturday, March 25, 2017.

Following the success of the inaugural staging of the 2017 JN Group Expo in Brampton, Canada earlier this year; and the subsequent demand for more services from Jamaicans in Canada, The Jamaica National Group will be expanding the event to Montreal and Ottawa for the second staging of the expo, in April 2018.

More than 6,000 Jamaicans and friends of the Jamaican community living in Canada sauntered through the Pearson Convention Centre in Brampton in April 2017 to learn more about the products and services of The JN Group; investment opportunities; real estate ventures; and relevant services from representatives of government agencies in Jamaica.

Organised by the Lynx Canada Foundation and JN Representative Office in Canada, under the patronage of the Jamaica National Group CEO, Mr. Earl Jarrett, the 2018 staging will take place at the Pearson Convention Centre on April 28; and at Ruby Foo’s Hotel in Montreal on April 30, with a final stop in Ottawa on May 01.

Captain Samoura Mills, operations and planning lead, Lynx Canada Foundation said a second location was added, so that Jamaicans who were unable to benefit from this year's expo, can participate in next year's event.

"Jamaicans across Canada will, therefore, benefit from the staging of the 2018 expo in Brampton and Montreal; as we mount a "one-stop" show, at each venue, to enhance their access to products and services from the Jamaican private and public sectors,” Captain Mills stated.

“Many persons, Jamaican-Canadians and friends of Jamaicans, expressed interest in investing in, or expanding their businesses to Jamaica. On that basis, they wanted to access financial and other related information about the opportunities that are available; and the steps they should take,” he explained.

The participating JN member companies are: JN General Insurance, JN Life Insurance, JN Fund Managers, the Group’s investment arm; and JN Money Services, with its flagship remittance brand, JN Money Transfer

Both shows are scheduled for 9:30 am to 7:00 pm; and will showcase the products and services of the JN Group; the linkages and benefits of the services offered by the JN Financial Group; its housing developers and real estate partners; as well as, agencies of the government of Jamaica.

Commenting on the success of the March 2017 Expo, Leon Mitchell, chief marketing and sales officer, of The Jamaica National Group, said the expo was able to deliver a package of intricately connected services, to enhance the investment process for Jamaicans in Canada, who want to maintain a connection with their country of birth.

“The Expo provides us with an opportunity to showcase the power of the JN brand and the strength of what the Group has to offer; as well as, the services of our partners and the Government of Jamaica,” he affirmed.

“We want to be relevant to our members and friends of Jamaica in Canada; and provide them with linkages, so that they can continue do business with us; and maintain strong and meaningful connections, which will facilitate investment in the land of their birth,” Mr. Mitchell added.

He further maintained that JN has always "put people first," therefore; it's only natural that in going forward, The JN Group would seek to do its part, to meet the needs of its valued customers and members in the wider Diaspora. For more information on the expo please visit
