Trade

Trade is strategically significant to our economy. Businesses that sell internally are 30% more productive and 25% more innovative. More exporting means more jobs: every $100 million in new export activity creates 1,000 jobs at home.

In an uncertain world, where many countries are closing their doors in a wave of protectionism, Canada is set to gain from foreign investment and trade. We need to do more to increase and diversify business’ trading activity.
