Canada’s economy depends heavily on trade and it is essential for businesses across the country to be able to get their goods to market. This morning at a press conference near the aging Gardiner Expressway, our President and CEO, the Hon. Perrin Beatty was joined by the President and CEO of the Ontario Chamber of Commerce, Allan O’Dette, and the President and CEO of the Toronto Region Board of Trade, Janet De Silva, to send a clear message to all the federal parties: the next federal government must have a ambitious vision on trade that includes essential infrastructure investments.
The progress of Canada’s trade agenda increases the importance of policies that will help businesses access newly-opened markets. Canada’s public assets from all across the country, such as airports, ports, roads, marine safety systems and many more, are critical and require funding and strategic policy direction.
