international trade, Canada, exports, employment
International trade is the life-blood of the Canadian economy. Exports have become the largest single source of jobs in Canada, providing employment for almost three million Canadians and accounting for approximately 30 per cent of the G.N.P.' It is imperative that everything possible should be done to encourage the growth of this vital sector of the economy and that any impediments to such growth should be removed.
