British Columbia and Mexico

Mexico has a rapidly developing economy and has experienced a growth of imports and exports in recent years. The country possesses one of the most open markets globally and holds 13 free-trade agreements that span 50 countries. B.C. and Mexico maintain strong economic ties through the CUSMA and CPTPP trade agreements, acting as an underlying foundation for trade. B.C. maintains an economic presence in Mexico through the support of ten Canadian Embassies and Consulates and three Trade Commissioner Offices.

Trade & Investment Highlights

  • CUSMA – The Canada-United-States-Mexico Agreement between Canada, the United States and Mexico is the largest free trade region in the world, further strengthening B.C. and Mexico’s economic ties.
  • CPTPP – The Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership between Canada and Mexico allows for free trade opportunities.
  • With a growing young population and pressure for ESG integration at a governmental level, Mexico can benefit from B.C.’s natural advantage as a leader in clean and renewable energy.
  • As a large and diverse market with a growing urban middles class, a skilled workforce and ample infrastructure, there is growing trade and investment opportunity across many sectors in Mexico.
