A strong partnership in trade:

Feeding an integrated supply chain! – Canada is California's top agricultural export market, with a total of $6.6B in bilateral agricultural trade in 2015. Canada imported $1.7B in fruit and nuts as well as $959M in vegetables from California. Meanwhile, California imported $2.2B in agricultural products from Canada including $386M in canola meal (often used for animal feed) which helped make California cows more productive and the California dairy industry more profitable. The California-Canada and U.S.-Canada trading relationships are increasingly important as trade and integration mutually strengthens our competitive position within the changing global marketplace.

Trade and investment with Canada = 1,166,100 jobs in California
