Canada is the largest single export market for the U.S. and is a highly receptive market for U.S. goods and services. The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and Canada’s geographic proximity have afforded U.S. firms with a significant advantage in selling to Canada’s markets. Are you maximizing your opportunity? Whether you currently export to Canada or are new to exporting, the importance of developing a strategic approach to this market is critical to your success. This series has been designed to help businesses strengthen the skills necessary to effectively do business in Canada.
