Canada is one of the world's premier locations for business investment.

Boasting an exceptional wealth of natural resources, a sound financial system and highly developed infrastructure, Canada ranks among the world’s most open and affluent economies. Our country’s culture of innovation is driven by a diverse and educated workforce, generous R&D incentives, and some of the G8’s lowest corporate tax rates. With easy access to major U.S. markets, Canada is a top destination for foreign companies seeking to establish a foothold in the North American marketplace.

Successfully establishing or expanding into the Canadian market means understanding the country’s changing business and legal landscape. Following resources, can help you do just that.
