Trudeau pitches Canada as tech jobs haven on trip to US

Trudeau pitches Canada as tech jobs haven on trip to US

According to prepared remarks, Trudeau says that the agreement has been an asset for Canadians and Americans, bringing prosperity with trade. "As the world's fastest growing top five software company, we look forward to a great partnership and to expanding our employees, customers and innovation in Canada".

Salesforce invests $2 billion into its Canadian business, it said on Thursday. His first meeting is with Salesforce CEO, Mark Benioff, and other tech leaders at the Salesforce offices in San Francisco.

Newsom thanked Trudeau for his energetic leadership on the global stage at a time of political uncertainty, an apparent reference to U.S. President Donald Trump.

Trudeau was also reportedly meeting with Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos in San Francisco, indicating that he's ramping up efforts to get the company's second headquarters in Toronto, the only shortlisted Canadian company on Amazon's radar.

Several tech entrepreneurs in Canada said the University of Toronto in particular was a draw, thanks to its research in machine learning and other artificial intelligence, and that businesses also could be certain they could hire anyone they wanted, given immigration policy.

Google built its latest DeepMind artificial intelligence facility at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada, after several of its graduates came to work on the project.

As a candidate, Trump has called NAFTA a job-killing disaster.

The lengthy talks have increased the political pressure and the rhetoric in Canada, where the stakes are high.

Trudeau is also expected to meet with Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner.

Trudeau declined to talk about specifics Thursday, but said Canada wants an agreement that is "win-win-win" for all three countries.

The Ventura County Fire Department said the crash involving California Highway Patrol officers happened shortly after Mr Trudeau's motorcade left the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, where Mr Trudeau gave a speech on Friday night.

"We're going to continue to make an argument that it's not enough to just trade, we have to ensure that the benefits of trade are properly and fairly shared", he said. He noted the two nations' economies are so interlinked that Canada wants a good deal with the U.S. Among his desires is requiring more made-in-America auto production and shifting more government contracts to US companies. In 1988, Reagan and then-Prime Minister Brian Mulroney signed the first free trade agreement — a precursor to NAFTA.
