Though Canada remains one of the most accessible market in the world, doing business in Canada is not the same as doing business anywhere else. Canadian Customs documentation, bilingual labelling, packaging requirements, ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulations), and Canadian federal and provincial sales tax accounting can be surprisingly challenging.
Continued high global prices for energy and other natural resources will drive increased development of Canadian energy and mining resources. These developments offer substantial opportunities in the renewable energy, mining, oil and gas, and environmental-related sectors.
Export to Canada - a few facts and figures
As of January 2014 we believe that the best prospects for exports to Canada in non-agricultural goods and services include the following:
Since the early 20th century, the growth of Canada's manufacturing, mining, and service sectors has transformed the nation from a largely rural economy to an urbanized, industrial one. Like many other developed nations, the Canadian economy is dominated by the service industry, which employs about three-quarters of the country's workforce. However, Canada is unusual among developed countries in the importance of its primary sector, in which the logging and petroleum industries are two of the most prominent components.
Canada is one of the few developed nations that are net exporters of energy. Atlantic Canada possesses vast offshore deposits of natural gas, and Alberta also hosts large oil and gas resources. The vastness of the Athabasca oil sands and other assets results in Canada having 13% of the global oil reserves, the world's third-largest, after Venezuela and Saudi Arabia. Canada is additionally one of the world's largest suppliers of agricultural products; the Canadian Prairies are one of the most important global producers of wheat, canola, and other grains. The Ministry of Natural Resources in Canada provides statistics regarding their major exports, zinc and uranium, and is a leading exporter of many other minerals, such as gold, nickel, aluminium, steel, iron ore, Coking Coal, and lead.
