Discover resources to take your business to Asia
The Asia Pacific area has increasingly become the largest area of the world that Canada does business with. The Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada, based on Statistics Canada data, reports that China continues to be one of Canada's biggest export and import partners. China (including Hong Kong), Japan and South Korea -- accounted for 76% of Canada's total trade with Asia.
Many small business people visit us in the Business Department at North York Central Library looking for resources to help them expand their businesses into these markets. The library offers a number of business databases that can assist you in doing your research, as well as links to government websites, such as Industry Canada's portal for doing business abroad or the city of Toronto's business portal for exporting. Most of the electronic resources can be accessed through the TPL website with a TPL library card. Staff at the information desk can assist in learning how to access this information.
While at the library, why not check out a few recent books on the topic?
