Beyond the Border: Doing Business in Canada

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?
