Celebrating the Ohio-Canada Partnership

 December 21, 2012


The George Gund Memorial Forum on the State of the American Economy

In partnership with The Greater Cleveland Partnership


Ohio and Canada share a significant border and therefore, have to maintain a significant relationship.  In 1955, The Great Lakes Commission was formed to promote the development and conservation of the Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence River.  All eight Great Lakes states are members and 1989 marks the first full year of the U.S.-Canada Free Trade Agreement.  Today, Ohio sells more to Canada than to its next 14 international export destinations combined.
