Presented by:
Canada-Minnesota Business Council

The Minnesota-Canada business relationship is large, dynamic, and very important to both countries. Merchandise trade is nearly $20 billion annually, and the flow of people, services, technical cooperation and other cross-border links is also significant. Minnesota exports a rich mixture of products to its northern neighbour, totalling more than its next three largest export destinations combined. Almost 180,000 jobs in the state are supported by the Canada-US trading relationship. In turn, Canada’s exports to Minnesota are large and diversified, with Canada’s reliable and secure energy supplies being especially important This strong and longstanding business partnership is a central element of being each other’s most important neighbour, friend and ally. It also creates a fertile and stimulating environment for the Canada-Minnesota Business Council (CMBC), created in 1994 to carry out the following objectives:
• Help build and maintain commercial and economic relationships between Canada and Minnesota
• Provide information about the Canadian business climate to the business community in Minnesota
• Provide a networking forum for Minnesota firms interested in Canada and for Canadian firms interested in Minnesota

“The Future of the U.S.-Canada Trade Relationship”

 

Canada and the United States enjoy a unique bilateral relationship, forged by shared geography, similar values, common interests, deep connections and powerful, multi-layered economic ties. Canada and the U.S. are partnering to grow our economies, meet North America’s energy needs and protect our shared environment. We stand together on security and defense of our continent, and around the world.

 

In addition, Canada is Minnesota’s top customer, largest trading partner, and northern neighbor. Today, more than 180,000 Minnesota jobs depend on trade and investment with Canada.

 

Please join Ambassador Doer for an intimate conversation about the future of the U.S.-Canada partnership, and its impact on Minnesota.
