Will Canada thrive as a global leader in international trade?

Caroline Grover

A new initiative, The Partnership for Resource Trade (PRT) is a public advocacy campaign to champion natural resources in Canada.

The initiative also promotes the communities in which they operate, and the businesses they support. This initiative is being carried out by chambers of commerce across Canada.

Over the next two years, Canada will consider numerous proposals to build new infrastructure to get Canada’s natural resources to market.

Canada must build the trade routes of the 21st century.

The natural resource sectors support directly and indirectly 1.8 million jobs across the country. They provide $30 billion a year to government revenues.

So what is holding Canada back from more robust resource sector growth? A lack of adequate transportation infrastructure that is needed to ship our goods to new, high growth markets.
