Canada and EU Launch Historic Economic Partnership
Location Canada 2009
Message from Canada's Minister of International Trade, Stockwell Day
In these challenging economic times, multinational companies are increasingly on the lookout for stable and predictable investment opportunities around the world - an environment readily available in Canada.
With a strong, prosperous, and stable economy, as well as the soundest banking systems in the world, Canada's growth prospects are unmatched in the G7, according to the International Monetary Fund. From our competitive corporate taxes to our investments in infrastructure and R&D and our world-class work force, Canada stands as a great place to invest, able to surface above the economic cross-currents.
Canada understands what investors are looking for. Over the years, we have developed a highly business-friendly environment, best demonstrated by our commitment to reduce taxes and increase investments in R&D, and our solid commitment to minimizing red tape for businesses.
Our strategic geographic location is yet another key advantage. As neighbor, partner, and friend to the United States, Canada is highly integrated with the American marketplace, witnessing hundreds of billions of dollars in trade crossing our border each and every year. Through the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), Canada, the United States, and Mexico have created the most successful free-trade area in the world - one that includes access to a prosperous marketplace of more than 440 million consumers.
Canada also boasts a very open economy. As a trading nation, we expanded far beyond our borders, building strong commercial partnerships with nations around the world. Look around and today you can find Canadian companies, products, expertise, and investment dollars at work across the globe.
With these advantages, the case for doing business in Canada has never been stronger.
As Canada's Minister for International Trade, I invite you to discover why global businesses and investors are choosing Canada as their investment destination of choice.
