Canadian Megatrends explores some of the sweeping changes that have had a lasting impact on Canadian society and economy.
International trade has played an integral role in Canada's economic history. Trade affects the economy in a myriad of ways—as a source of industrial production and income growth, and as a means through which Canadians gain access to foreign funds, investment goods, new technologies, and an ever-expanding array of products and services.
Exports in particular contribute substantially to economic growth in Canada. Canadian export flows have evolved over time as trade-oriented sectors responded to shifts in the global demand for Canadian commodities. Both resources and manufactured goods have been important to the development of Canadian export markets.
