The effect of foreign direct investment on the Canadian economy has been studied extensively. By comparison, however, there has been little analysis of the potential consequences of Canadian direct investment abroad (CDIA) for Canada. The broad objective of this study is to examine the recent trends in CDIA, to analyse the performance of outward-oriented Canadian firms and to assess the impact of their activities on the Canadian economy.
