On January 26, 2017, Fertilizer Canada and 19 other business associations pledged to work with the Canadian government to help ensure that U.S. legislators are aware of the millions of American jobs that depend on the Canada-U.S. relationship. The Canadian Chamber of Commerce discussed the groundwork for a trans-border commerce strategy designed to expand business relationships with the United States and the world. The meeting was joined by MP Andrew Leslie, parliamentary secretary to the Minister of Foreign Affairs and special advisor on Canada-U.S. Relations. Participants welcomed Mr. Leslie’s early efforts to build up the relationship and they expressed strong support for a united Canadian effort on an issue that transcends sectoral, regional and partisan boundaries.
