FDI & Trade Relationships

Canada has a key first mover advantage as the only country to have free trade agreements (FTA) with all other countries in the G7. Canada is also the only G7 country with preferential FTA access to the world’s two largest economies the E.U. and the U.S., making it well positioned for businesses looking for a competitive advantage. With support from the B.C. government, export-ready international enterprises can develop strong relationships to obtain essential resources, skilled labour, and streamlined shipping and logistics that bring efficiency and value to their operations.
