Another very important link is through TRADE. Trade is the buying, selling and exchanging of goods and services. Trade takes place between individuals, businesses, cities, provinces and counties. In this 18 minute video, we are going to explore Canada's link to other countries, focusing on our trading relationships. We will also examine some of Canada's most important trading partners, with three bonus five to six minute segments on China, Mexico and the United States.

Topics such as the fur trade, early immigration and the building of early transportation systems are discussed.
