Canada: Economic indicators and trade with EU

Written by Giulio Sabbati (both EPRS),

In cooperation with Marta Russo (from GlobalStat | EUI),

Canada is looking to diversify its trade partners in order to reduce its dependence on the US business cycle. The Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) between the EU and Canada entered into force provisionally in September 2017. What goods and services is the EU exporting to Canada? How do the growth rates of Canada and the EU compare over the last decade? Who has a higher female labour market participation rate? How much have the FDI net inflows dropped since the financial crisis?

You can find the answers to these and other questions in our infographic, prepared in close cooperation between EPRS and GlobalStat.

This is an updated edition of an ‘At a Glance’ note published in February 2017.
