Annual Survey of Canadian Exporters

Type: Research Studies
Date Published: October 29, 2004
Research Topics:
Over the past three years, The Fraser Institute has surveyed Canadian companies about the state of Canada-US trade relations and the incidence on non-tariff and non-quota trade barriers that companies operating in Canada face when exporting to the United States. The survey reveals largely unseen problems affecting Canadian exporters and may also be a harbinger of more problems to come. The vast majority of respondents believed protectionist sentiment is building in the United States and that this sentiment is already affecting Canadian companies' ability to sell in the United States.

The types of trade barriers examined here are used on both sides of the border but this study gives a Canadian perspective on crossborder issues by surveying only Canadian exporters. The survey focuses on three broad categories: discriminatory regulations, border delays, and domestic content requirements.
