Canada also holds the distinction of being the easiest location in the G20 to start a business, with the process requiring only two procedures and less than two days, according to the World Bank 4. For investors, Canada’s high global rankings demonstrate an environment that nurtures business growth.

Canada’s economy is one of the most resilient in the world; this country consistently outranks its G7 peers in long-term economic growth and boasts the fastest-growing economy in the G7. Canada enjoys a full 245-basis-point lead over its closest performer, the United States 5, and has posted the second highest business investment growth in the G7 over the 2007 to 2016 period 6. Canada’s economic performance is anchored by a diversified resource base, leading-edge innovation clusters, competitive business costs and tax rates, and one of the world’s most stable financial systems, providing ample growth opportunities and stability for investors looking to engage with this country’s business community.”
