Inward FDI in Canada and its policy context
Canada has actively participated in the corporate globalization process and is a major importer of foreign direct investment (FDI). Canada's high levels of inward FDI (IFDI) over the past 25 years reflect its improved business climate, reduced restrictions on foreign ownership and a prospering economy. Like other developed economies, Canada experienced declining FDI inflows in 2008 and 2009, largely due to the dramatic fall in mergers and acquisitions (M&As) and the global economic recession. However, the outlook for 2010 and beyond is promising because of expected economic expansion in Canada and other countries, and improved global financial markets. Moreover, the Canadian government has sent strong signals to foreign investors that Canada is open for business by, among other things, lifting restrictions on previously protected sectors and increasing the financial thresholds for the review of foreign investments.
