OUR THOUGHTS ON:

Beyond the Border: Doing Business in Canada

International

By Mary Richter

As the second largest country in the world, Canada is quite known for their gold-medal hockey teams and their sweet maple syrup; however, Canada is also a member of the world’s Group of Eight (G8) industrialized nations, and is home to one of the world’s most stable business environments.

With approximately 72% of the country’s exports going to the United States, how can your company take advantage of the vast business opportunities in Canada?

Doing Business in Canada

If your organization is currently thinking about establishing or acquiring a business in Canada, attending our Doing Business in Canada seminar will prove to be a valuable resource.  Doing Business in Canada is designed to provide a concise overview of Canada’s economic framework, cultural background and key business legislation.

Our featured speakers, Mark McGinnis & Doug Hartkorn, Partners at Shimmerman Penn in Toronto, will discuss opportunities for your business in Canada and will focus on a variety of topics including taxation on business income, withholding tax rules and waiver procedures, taxation of employees, and an in-depth overview of GST/HST.
