Often neglected, Canada plays quite the role in Arizona’s economy and has now for quite some time. Canada was our second largest bilateral trade partner in 2015 at $3.7 billion, and looking at Arizona history, both Douglas and Chandler Arizona were named after Canadians.
Not surprisingly Maricopa County beat out the rest of Arizona with 20,000 Canadian owned homes, which is 94 percent of the residential foreign-owned properties. Pima County can’t compete with these numbers, but has greatly benefited from Canadian-owned companies such as Stantec, Oracle Mining, and Southern Arizona’s top aerospace industry employer, Bombardier.
Canada’s presence in Arizona continues to grow as about 146,000 Arizona jobs depend on trade and investment with Canada. Although Mexico may still be beating Canada in exports and tourism, here at Tango we would be happy to help any Canadian companies find the right building in Arizona for their business.
