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.

This four part series has been designed to help businesses strengthen the skills necessary to effectively do business in Canada.
