The Canadian Opportunity: An Economic and Investment Overview

"The Canadian Opportunity" is an overview of the Canadian economy and the factors that make Canada such an attractive investment opportunity. It also explains some of the key differences between Canadian and U.S. law that can affect how U.S. and other foreign investors approach a potential Canadian investment. These include the relatively greater legislative and regulatory authority of Canadian provinces (vs. U.S. states), tax differences, distinctions between a Canadian "amalgamation" and a U.S. "merger", foreign investment rules and the fundamentally different litigation landscape in Canada.
