Canada is a Hot Spot for US Investment Capital, But Strategic Partnerships are Key

As The Economist recently observed, companies ended 2020 with more capital on hand than ever before. Now, as the world cautiously steps towards a way out of the slowdown caused by the pandemic, the question for business leaders in the US is what to do with that capital.

Canada continues to be a favorable destination for Foreign Direct Investment according to the World Bank’s 2020 Doing Business Report. Within the next decade, the country’s GDP will move from its current ranking of 10th to 8th in the world. For US companies with offices in Canada or those considering expanding northward, the country offers significant advantages. Affordable commercial real estate combined with a highly skilled workforce and tax incentives continue to encourage growth-oriented US businesses to setup operations north of the border.

While Canada offers unique opportunities for American business leaders, navigating entry into a new market and unlocking its benefits often requires making the right partnerships. Making the right business decision regarding your network infrastructure is imperative so that your business can realize the benefits of expansion while avoiding unnecessary capital expenditures.
