Read InvestHK’s Profile on Canadian Businesses in Hong Kong
Many of Canada’s leading companies have established a business presence in Hong Kong, and are using this city as a springboard into Mainland China as well as a regional base to secure a foothold into other dynamic markets in Asia. The Canadian business community has always played an important role in Hong Kong’s economy, with more than 200 Canadian companies now doing business here. They are a diverse and vibrant group, with financial services, technology companies and consumer brands particularly well represented. Canadian SMEs (small and medium sized enterprises) also flourish, particularly in the areas of information and communications technology, sustainable technologies, transportation, agri-food and professional services.
There are also strong historic people-to-people ties between Hong Kong and Canada. Currently, it is estimated that there are close to 300,000 Canadian passport holders living in the Hong Kong SAR and another 500,000 Hongkongers in Canada.
