Canada is Connected
Bordered by three oceans, spanning six time zones and covering 9,970,610 square km (3,849,650 square miles), Canada is the second-largest country on earth. But distance isn’t a deterrent for businesses operating in Canada, thanks to its sophisticated infrastructure and highly developed transportation network.
Canada has over 300 airports, 10 of the major international centers. Toronto is the busiest airport in the country, serving as an east-west hub and handling roughly half of all passenger traffic.
More than 300 commercial ports and harbours move local and global goods in Canada. The Atlantic, Arctic and Pacific oceans surround Canada’s three coasts. Canada is also home to the world’s longest inland waterway open to shipping—the Great Lakes/St. Lawrence Seaway—the industrial heart of North America.
