WAVTEQ has announced the launch of CANADA INVESTMENT MONITOR (CIM), a unique platform to track the expansion of Canada-headquartered companies domestically within Canada, across all regions and sectors.
With 1400+ greenfield investment projects tracked since January 2018, CANADA INVESTMENT MONITOR fills a key gap in the market, identifying in real-time which Canadian companies are expanding and the locations in which they are choosing to invest.
The tool analyses geographic and sector investment flows across Canada, providing local and regional governments with valuable insights on regional performance and the fastest growing sectors.
Scott Bryan Senior Partner, WAVTEQ, commented, "Given the new USMCA that replaced NAFTA, the boom in Canada's entrepreneurial ecosystem, as well as emerging and converging industries, it's now more important than ever for EDOs, governments and private sector companies to keep a pulse on domestic investment activity. Given that over 80% of inward investment projects in Canada are from domestic companies, having the ability to identify new and/or expanding companies across the country will better enable both planning and the ability to adapt in real time to market opportunities."
With four-fifths of inward investment projects in Canada coming from domestic companies, CANADA INVESTMENT MONITOR gives investment promotion professionals the latest insights, trends and leads on Canada's domestic investment landscape.
