Canada is an important trade and investment partner for British companies of all sizes and across the spectrum of business activity. Canada is one of the world’s richest and most developed countries, and with the low inflation and positive economic growth, particularly given the recent global economic crisis, Canada offers good trade, investment and partnership opportunities for British companies in many sectors particularly ICT. The proximity of the U.S. market to Canada is of fundamental importance with 75% of Canadian exports going to the U.S. This, therefore, offers U.K. companies NAFTA access to the U.S. and Mexican market from Canada.
