The Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montreal

Companies in business with the United States: get equipped in the wake of the election

Do you do business with the United States or have cross-border market prospects?

The American election has an impact on your trade relations. As 80% of Canadian exports make their way to the United States [1], the business community is justifiably keeping a watchful eye on its neighbour’s new political configuration. Over the last few months of the campaign, there has been a noticeable rise in protectionism, and NAFTA has been brought into question. The time is therefore ripe for rapprochement between Quebec companies and their American clients, as Michel Leblanc, President and CEO of the Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montreal, has advised.

We also cannot forget that the United States remains the world’s main economic engine, and therefore a key market.

To keep up to date on the latest trends and current regulations, we are offering the following three activities:

  • The United States: the election’s impact on cross-border trade

Political and economic update in the United States.

See details of the activity
  • How to prevent US lawsuits
