Canada is the United States’ number one customer in the world

Canadian trade and investment support hundreds of thousands of American jobs and benefit communities throughout the United States. The deep economic relationship between the U.S. and Canada is built on shared values, close people-to-people ties, and a robust trade agreement – the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) – which provides the foundation for a more competitive North America.
