Canada to Open Trade Office in Pittsburgh, Continue to Grow Relationship as Region's Largest Trading Partner

The Government of Canada will open a trade office in Pittsburgh and seek ways to grow exports and imports in southwestern Pennsylvania. The move will expand on Canada's representation for the past nine years by Honorary Consul Roger Cranville, who said he has stepped down from his position, effective March 31.

"Western Pennsylvania continues to be important to the Government of Canada, particularly on the key issues of border cooperation and economic development," Cranville wrote in a message to friends and business associates announcing the change. "The Canadian Consulate General in New York will continue to work through its new Trade Commissioner representative in Pittsburgh to build on the strong links that have been developed here over the past several years. This continued Canadian presence in Western Pennsylvania will ensure that Canada remains engaged with businesses and stakeholders in this region, and that Canada's ties to this important region remain firmly entrenched."

A date for the opening of the new trade office was not announced.
