Export Opportunities in Canada

Canada is the top export market for the U.S., Illinois, and Peoria! Too often we fail to recognize the potential opportunity right next door, overlooking our strongest trading partner.

  • Total Canada-Illinois goods trade in 2014: $67.1 billion.
  • 344,300 jobs in Illinois depend on Canada – U.S. trade and investment.
  • Canada is Peoria’s top export market with approximately $1.1 billion in exports in 2012 and 2013.

Highlights Include

  • An update on Canada’s business climate and a forecast of the latest opportunities.
  • An introduction to the agencies that are there to help you succeed in Canada.
  • Information on current programs offering funding and resource assistance.
