Often there are rules and restrictions governing foreign investment into a jurisdiction, such as Canada.
The Investment Canada Act governs the notification and review of certain business investments by non-Canadians. Additional federal and provincial legislation specific to industries such as banking, film distribution, telecommunications, mining and energy exists, as does legislation concerning land ownership.
We advise foreign clients investing in Canada in navigating and obtaining foreign investment clearance.
We work with private and public clients in many industries including mining, technology, life sciences, finance, transportation, broadcasting, food, health care, professional services and others. We also represent foreign state-owned enterprises interested in investing in Canada, the U.K. and South Africa.
Contact us if you are considering a foreign investment or subscribe to our publication Doing Business in Canada for a comprehensive overview of the rules that affect business operations.
