Canada’s Place in the World

Canada’s prosperity relies on global stability, the rules-based multilateral trading system, cooperation among like-minded partners and respect for sovereign states.

As a relatively small, open economy, Canada benefits from trade and investment liberalization.

Areas of focus include:

North America

Working closely with the United States and Mexico to strengthen North American competitiveness and security.

International Trade

Enhancing Canada’s existing economic partnerships while seeking new opportunities to trade with emerging markets.

Global Affairs

Supporting international institutions that contribute to global peace and prosperity.


Canada matters in all of this

Victor Dodig argues that Canada can be a source of economic security and resiliency for the U.S. and other international partners, especially in a world marked by greater volatility and uncertainty. He shares this perspective in an interview with the Financial Post following the Business Council’s CEO delegation to Washington, DC.
