Canada is the top destination for U.S. exports of high-value agricultural products, with a total of $16.2 billion exported to
Canada. Some of the top export categories include: fresh and processed fruits and vegetables, meats, prepared food, snack
food, and pet food. Overall, at $20.2 billion, Canada is the second largest export market for U.S. agricultural products.
Consumer-oriented agricultural goods account for nearly 80 percent of U.S. exports to Canada, followed by intermediate
goods and bulk commodities.

This mission will take place in Toronto, which is in the province of Ontario and Canada’s most populous city at 2.6 million.
The Greater Toronto Area (GTA) has an estimated population of 6.1 million, accounting for 16% of the national population
