Why Canadian Businesses Expand to Buffalo Niagara
Strategic location. With seven international points of entry and easy access to markets throughout America, Canada, and Mexico we make it easy for you to get your product into the hands of buyers.
The similarities shared between the U.S. and Canada in terms of business practices, highly developed infrastructure, and an English-speaking labor force make the decision to look directly south of the border clear.
We’re cross-border experts. We know how to help Canadian businesses navigate the expansion process. We also work with a team of partners that can assist with legal issues like immigration and obtaining Visas and NEXUS cards, using the “Made in the USA” label, incorporation, and importing goods; accounting and tax issues like compliance and incentives; banking issues like managing cross-border accounts and transactions; and human resources issues like hiring, termination, and payroll.
We’re a binational gateway for commerce. Buffalo Niagara facilitates $83 billion in annual trade between the U.S. and Canada—a full 15% of all trade between the two countries. Buffalo Niagara is located in the Golden Horseshoe, which encompasses 9.3 million people.
