Two Way Trading Relationship: Doing Business in Canada and the United States

November 14

Review current macro issues such as U.S. tax reform, cannabis legalization in Canada, the “new NAFTA”—the US-Canada-Mexico Agreement (USMCA)—impacting cross-border businesses.

Canada and the United States enjoy one of the world’s largest bilateral trading relationship, with nearly $2 billion in trade and 300,000 persons crossing the Canada - U.S. border each day. The Canada - U.S. business relationship is also the most integrated in the world, with 1/3 of its trade occurring within cross-border companies (i.e., intra-firm trade) and another 1/3 occurring within bi-national supply chains (e.g., the auto, aerospace, and energy industries). Notwithstanding the intertwined nature of the Canada - U.S. business community, there exist material legal and regulatory differences between the two countries that have only been amplified by the new NAFTA, The US-Canada-Mexico Agreement (USMCA), tax reform, cannabis legalization, and protectionist policies. This topic will feature experts from the leading full-service Canada - U.S. law firm who will provide updates on matters of Canada - U.S. corporate law and review real-world case studies, and will benefit both those currently operating in the cross-border environment, as well as those seeking to enter the Canadian market.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to review the differences in Canada and U.S. legal regimes.
  • You will be able to discuss options for entering the cross-border market.
  • You will be able to identify and establish corporate presence in Canada and the United States.
  • You will be able to describe the moving of goods and people across the Canada - U.S. border and customs compliance.
