Asia’s rise is the single most transformative force within the global economy. Rapid urbanization and the expected doubling of the world’s middle class over the next 15 years will have profound consequences. Countries and companies that adapt successfully to these changes can expect to prosper and grow; others will be left behind.

Spearheaded by the Munk School of Global Affairs, the CANASIA Footprint map displays nearly 1200 locations of Canadian companies and organizations in Asia, filtering by sector, country and province. Based on publicly available data, this is a living, evolving map that conveys the extent of Canadian business activities in Asia. Click here to explore.
