Delivering the Distinguished Canadian Address, “Shared Border, Shared Values: the U.S.- Canada Relationship in the 21st Century,” earlier this year, Consul General of Canada in New York Phyllis Yaffe said, “In many ways we really are one economy.”
In Clinton Country we feel this connection in very real way. There are 180 Canadian-based companies in Clinton County. 18% of Clinton County’s workforce crosses the border to work each day. The North Country exports to Canada in 2015 exceeded $626 million.
In areas like the transportation industry, our two regions are seeing the power that exists in a bi-national approach to competing in today’s global marketplace.
We at TDC salute Canada – our partner, our neighbor and our friend.
