FDI flows for Canada from through cally, the entry of foreign-owned firms often 1 This is a well-accepted definition of FDI as pro- main finding is that Canada’s FDI performance changes quite noticeably in recent years from earlier years. Specifically, inward FDI flows to. Empirical studies continuously reveal differences in the performance of foreign-owned firms (FOFs) and domestically-owned firms (DOFs) across countries, industries, over time and also at the plant level. Empirical evidence, however, is not conclusive. In some studies, FOFs perform better than domestic ones and .

Canada levies customs duties on certain goods imported into Canada, and applies additional excise taxes on the importation of specific goods. The tariff classification and origin of imported goods determines the applicable rate of the customs duty. If goods satisfy specific rules-of-origin criteria, they may qualify for preferential duty rates.   If foreign ownership performance effects are sensitive to the particular configuration in which a country is located, then domestic performance effects may also be further enhanced by spillovers from foreign-owned firms (Witt & Jackson, ; World Bank, ). Our results are suggestive in this regard.   Looking at foreign acquisitions in the UK, Girma and Görg () find foreign ownership negatively related to firm survival but Bandick and Görg () find the opposite result for Sweden, if the acquired plant was an exporter.

Improving the productivity performance of the local business sector can be achieved by reducing high regulatory barriers to entrepreneurship, further improving Irish infrastructure and raising the.

Attention is paid to the different actors in the system, who both compete with and complement one another. The study investigates how innovation regimes differ across size of firm and across industries. Owing to the high degree of foreign investment in Canada, special attention is paid to the performance of foreign-owned firms. Underlying much of the discussion in Canada of direct investment companies is the assumption that the results of their operations differ from those of their resident-owned counterparts. The difference, it is usually assumed, is in the direction of an inferior performance by the direct investment firm. This article summarizes and discusses key empirical findings on these issues, with a focus on four types of international activity (exports, imports, offshoring, and inward foreign direct investment that leads to foreign-owned firms) and four labor-related dimensions of firm performance (employment, productivity, wages, and survival). The Double Diamond Model: Canada's Experience the nature of inter-firm competition in Canada probably better reflect the reality of foreign ownership than those of most other economies, especially those of the United States.
