About the Project

The APF Canada Investment Monitor captures, visualizes, analyzes, and reports on Canada’s two-way investment relations with Asia Pacific.

The project seeks to address the limitations in official statistics and other investment tracking services by offering detailed information related to Canada-Asia investments drawn from APF Canada’s own unique legacy data collected over more than a decade and from other public sources.

The project will produce distinct content across three annual phases: 1) Asia Pacific invests in Canada (launching in April 2017), monitoring inward foreign direct investment (FDI) from Asia Pacific in Canada; 2) Canada invests in Asia Pacific (launching in April 2018), monitoring outward FDI from Canada in Asia Pacific; and 3) Canada-Asia Pacific city investments (launching in April 2019), monitoring FDI two-way investment relations between major Canadian and Asia Pacific cities.
