The UK is Canada’s second biggest world trading partner – after the US – and it’s a relationship that can only get stronger following a deal between the European Union (EU) and Canada that will benefit UK businesses and the economy by as much as £1.3billion a year.
Not only that, but latest estimates suggest that UK exports to Canada may increase by 29% (£2.3 billion) while Canadian exports to the UK could increase by 15%.

Where is Canada?
Located in North America, Canada is the world’s second largest nation with a land mass of 9,984,670 square kilometers. It borders USA to the south and to the north west, via the state of Alaska to the northwest. It has coastlines along the Atlantic Ocean, Pacific Ocean, Arctic Ocean, Beaufort Sea and Labrador Sea,
What’s the best time to call Canada from the UK?
Toronto lies 3,500 miles from London (believe it or not, it’s actually more southerly), and direct flights from London take around seven-and-a-half hours.
And so vast is Canada, it has no fewer than six time zones – so setting up a conference call could be a bit of a logistical nightmare!
The thing to remember is that Canada is BEHIND the UK, and the difference can be anything between eight and five hours behind.
