Thanks to their common history, culture and values, France and Canada have always been enjoying good bilateral relations. Commercial trade between the two countries reached 9.9 billion euros in 2016 and, by the end of 2017, Canadian direct investment in France was valued at around 8 billion euros against 8.2 billion euros for French direct investment in Canada.

Through their different meetings, the Canadian Prime Minister Mr. Trudeau and the French President Mr. Macron have also been working on strengthening the links between the two countries.

They committed to set up the Transatlantic Fund, which will allow the investment of more than 75 millions of euros for Canadian companies that are willing to develop their business in France but also for French companies that want to do the same in Canada. Thanks to this fund, the two countries are thus encouraging the promotion of economic growth and the creation of good middle-class jobs.
