Current Situation

 

Canada is located in North America, it is bordered by the United States. Canada's economy is diversified but in some regions is mostly based on natural resources and most export sectors are dependent on trade with the United States. Canada is slowly coming out of the world recession, but its banking system has weathered the turmoil relatively unscathed and is being seen as a model for other industrialized countries.
