The US is the dominant export market for Ontario goods; getting an inside track on how to conduct business in the US is vital for business success. The Canada – US border facilitates over $1 million in cross border trade every minute. And as Canada’s US trade leader, Ontario exports to the US support one in four jobs. The Windsor-Detroit region is also the busiest international border crossing in the world.
Past webinars about exporting to the US can be viewed from the DFAIT website at well.
