Toronto is a major hub and being able to get to Europe, cities in the United States and across Canada all within a single flight – that’s gold.

A Toronto address puts your business in the heart of the political and financial centre of North America with close proximity to New York, Chicago, Boston and Washington. Toronto is served by two airports, Toronto Pearson International and Billy Bishop, offering more than a thousand daily flights combined. International trade agreements (North American Free Trade Agreement and the Comprehensive Economic Trade Agreement between Canada and the European Union) open the door to more than one billion consumers across the United States, Mexico and the European Union with a combined GDP of over $37 trillion.
Canada was recently designated as the first renminbi (RMB) trading hub in the Americas and the only RMB trading hub in North America. This designation strengthens our economic and business relationship with China, making the cost of doing business with Asian partners cheaper for Canadian companies, and boosting trade between the two countries.
