Learn about investing in Canada

More and more global companies are investing in Canada thanks to our top talent, abundant natural resources and preferential access to markets around the globe. Find out how the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) has made our market even more attractive to investors from the Asia-Pacific.

A welcoming investment climate

Canada is recognized as the best country in the G20 to do business. For more than a decade, we’ve led all G7 countries in economic growth. What’s more, investors benefit from:

Priority access to global markets

CPTPP makes Canada the only G7 nation having comprehensive free trade agreements with all other G7 members, and having preferential access across the Americas, Europe and the Asia-Pacific region. CPTPP is designed to expand to include new members to increase benefits for both investors and Canadian businesses.

Enhanced investor protection

If you’re an investor from the Asia-Pacific, CPTPP provides greater certainty, transparency and protection for your investments. Here are some highlights:

Non-discriminatory treatment

CPTPP ensures that investors from the Asia-Pacific receive fair and non-discriminatory treatment. This means they must receive the same level of treatment as Canadian investors and any third-country investor in similar situations.

Non-conforming measures

Canada maintains policy flexibility in sensitive areas such as Indigenous and minority affairs, culture, fisheries, social services (including health and public education), and certain transportation services, among others. This helps ensure that the Government of Canada can continue to keep measures on services and investment in place, based on domestic priorities.
