Attracting the Big Bucks: Foreign Investment in Atlantic Canada

August 1, 2005

Foreign firms can play a significant role in economic development by helping to increase productive capacity, providing employment and incomes, and by contributing to productivity gains and technology transfer. Until now, there were no provincial data available on the actual amount of foreign investment in Canada. 

This report uses new data produced by Statistics Canada on capital expenditure by foreign firms to show how much foreign firms are investing in the Atlantic region and which sectors are driving that investment. It compares the level of foreign investment in the Atlantic provinces with that received by other provinces to draw some preliminary conclusions on the attractiveness of the Atlantic region for foreign investment.
