Investing in Canada


Canada consistently ranks among the top countries in the world for foreign investors to conduct business. With investment-friendly government policies, participation in key free trade agreements (including NAFTA and CETA), a skilled workforce and strong market positions in both traditional and emerging industries, Canada is viewed as an attractive option for foreign investors who are looking to expand or launch new business ventures in Canada, or want to invest in existing Canadian companies. Doing so successfully and seamlessly, however, requires a deep understanding of the laws and regulations that impact trade with and investment in Canada and the operation of a business in Canada. As a large proportion of Miller Thomson’s practice involves advising foreign investors in Canada and representing businesses owned by non-Canadians, our extensive local presence is advantageous in helping clients navigate the country’s unique legal and regulatory landscape.
