Canada's international investment position, first quarter 2013
Canada's net foreign debt declined $70.8 billion in the first quarter to $231.3 billion. This mainly reflected the impact of higher foreign stock markets on the value of Canada's foreign assets, which more than offset the borrowing requirements in the quarter related to Canada's current account deficit.
