Canada-U.S.

Canada and the United States share one of the most remarkable and prosperous relationships in the world. Our supply chains are so deeply intertwined that we literally build things together. 

While Canada must continue to diversify its international trade, it must also work to strengthen its relationship with its largest trading partner. To reinforce its relationship with the United States, the Canadian Chamber of Commerce believes Canada should focus on the following key areas: working together on energy security and the environment; ensuring our shared border is efficient and open to legitimate trade and travel; removing unnecessary regulatory differences and enhancing our trade relationship.

All of this is dependent on maintaining the North American Free Trade Agreement. It has provided businesses with the certainty to put down roots and build relationships across the continent that allow them to flourish. Therefore, the Canadian Chamber of Commerce is undertaking a series visits in selected states across America. The goal of the campaign is to raise awareness in key states among business leaders and legislators about how important the Canada-U.S. relationship is to businesses on both sides of the border. So far we have successfully visited Virginia, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas. We will continue to look for opportunities to meet with our partners on both sides of the border to talk about the benefits of a close cooperative relationship.
