Canada and Colorado have more in common that just Molson-Coors and our mutual love of hockey. In 2013, Colorado and Canada assessed more than $6.1 billion in bilateral merchandise trade, with nearly 77% of all the state’s exports heading directly north to Alberta. Much of this mutual economic prosperity can be attributed to the success of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which, in 2014, celebrates 20 years.
 
Join the City Club of Denver, in partnership with World Denver, in welcoming the Consul General of Canada, Marcy Grossman as she discusses the future of North American competitiveness and explores the role of energy, agriculture and trade in the economic success of Canada’s relationship with the United States and Colorado.
