Reading Time 1 minute read


Canada is one of the most attractive markets for international business expansion. While numerous foreign enterprises are ready to incorporate Canadian subsidiaries, set up formal Canadian branches, or acquire Canadian businesses, others are not. For those companies that are interested in expanding their operations, sales, and/or business into Canada more generally, Fasken has developed a guide to help.

The Expanding into Canada publication provides an overview of key areas of Canadian law that are relevant to companies that are considering expanding their business into Canada, particularly from the Asia-Pacific region.
