Business Opportunities in Canada

06 June 2019

Join us in Inverness for a free seminar about doing business in Canada.

Inverness – Thursday, 6 June

Sign up today and hear from experts as they share information, insights and expertise to help you maximise the opportunities in Canada.

Why Canada?

The UK exported £8.2 billion of goods and services to Canada in 2016, making it the UK’s eighth biggest export market outside the EU. The UK is also Canada’s seventh largest source of goods imports and second largest services trading partner.

Canada is an important market for Scotland's tourism businesses. In 2017, Canada was Scotland’s 10th largest source market measured by number of visits; 5th largest by number of nights and 7th largest by expenditure.

Benefits for UK businesses 

There are many reasons to choose Canada as an export destination:

  • It has similar legal and business practices to the UK
  • There are fewer trade restrictions due to the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) agreement
  • It offers close proximity and easier access to the US market
  • It has a strong business and consumer base
  • Like the UK, it is considered to have one of the most transparent legislatures, with Canada ranked as one of the least corrupt nations in the world
