Canada Roadmap for a Renewed U.S.-Canada Partnership

On February 23, 2021, President Biden and Prime Minister Trudeau announced a Roadmap for a Renewed U.S.-Canada Partnership that will revitalize and expand the historic relationship between the two countries.  The Roadmap is a blueprint for bilateral engagement to address a number of issues, including climate change, helping small and medium sized businesses recover from the pandemic, and strengthening supply chain security and defense.
Building Back Better - The Roadmap outlines a shared vision for a sustainable and inclusive economic recovery that ensures people have good jobs and careers on both sides of the border. Joint initiatives to accelerate economic recovery of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), with a focus on supporting women-owned and minority/indigenous-owned SMEs by leveraging the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) will receive support at the highest-levels of the U.S. and Canadian government.  U.S. SMEs composing over 84% of U.S. Commercial Service clients, and Canada being the single largest U.S. export market.
Climate change – Combating climate change is essential for the planet.  Moreover, it is good business.  U.S. firms can offer solutions for reducing Canada’s carbon footprint, from new civil nuclear technologies, to energy saving commercial and residential solutions.

Defense & security – An impressive North American defense industry can only be strengthened by upcoming defense sector procurements in Canada.  In addition, expanded cooperation on continental defense, in the Artic and in building supply chain security will present new commercial opportunities for U.S. companies.
