Doing Business in Canada 2016

Canada continues to maintain its ranking as the United States’ largest export market in the world accounting for US$312 billion of U.S. goods. This figure represents a US$12 billion increase (four percent) from 2013 and the highest total on record. Proximity, ease of doing business, a common business culture, rule of law, and high receptivity for U.S.-made goods and services contribute to the already significant bilateral trade base. Anticipated future growth and expansion of the Canadian economy ensure that U.S.-made goods and services will be competitive in this market in the coming years. In 2013, Canada ranked third in the world in foreign direct investment (FDI) to the United States.
