As a relatively small, open economy, Canada benefits from trade and investment liberalization.
Areas of focus include:
Working closely with the United States and Mexico to strengthen North American competitiveness and security.
Enhancing Canada’s existing economic partnerships while seeking new opportunities to trade with emerging markets.
Supporting international institutions that contribute to global peace and prosperity.
Canadian trade and investment support more than 2 million American jobs, generate nearly USD $300 billion in exports, and benefit thousands of communities throughout the country. 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.
