The Alea Sessions - Canada Edition

Canadian family offices: a sleeping economic giant

A day of panels and talks for business leaders and family offices who have the power and enthusiasm to take their work and impact to the next level.


Montreal, Canada.


16 October 2024.


Alea Global Group is headed to Canada for the first time with an exclusive one-day event to bring together the region’s family offices and those who want to do business with them. 

This edition of The Alea Sessions will cover topics of great interest to family offices and service providers in the region, and will also facilitate the kind of networking that brings about quick and significant results for all of our attendees.

As a family office ourselves, Alea Global Group is in a privileged position to be able to organize family office networking events attended by family office members themselves. We have a long history of filling the room at our events with key decision-makers from family offices and businesses seeking their time and attention, meaning many successful and fruitful partnerships begin at our events. 

Throughout the day we will hear vital business insight from experts in a multitude of highly relevant fields, in a series of panels and talks that cover some of your most pressing issues. 

We will discuss investment news, family office roles in shaping national identity, the ever-changing sustainable tourism sector, Canada’s cultural impact on the world, the best real estate investments, and the untapped power of family offices in Canada. 

The day will also be curated to include informal managed networking breaks which will allow everyone who attends to meet the people they need to meet in order to achieve their goals.
