More than $2.4 billion in goods and services was traded between Canada and the United States daily in 2014, making the two countries the world's largest trading partners. This unique bilateral relationship can present both challenges and opportunities for U.S. employers doing business in Canada. While the countries share similarities, the employment law differences are very pronounced and there are very distinct legislative, regulatory, and common law differences that US companies must deal with to when managing the Canadian workplace. These range from the lack of employment at will in Canada, to the greater power of unions, to different types of litigation, and the unique problems of dealing primarily with the laws of each of the provinces, especially the distinct province of Quebec.
