Buffalo Niagara’s location is the key to the workings of the largest international Mega-Region between the US and Canada. Our region is strategically located within 500 miles/800 km of 40% of the U.S. population. Our international border makes our region a bi-national gateway for commerce, facilitating $85 billion in annual trade between Canada and the United States. Our two countries are the world’s largest trading partner and our neighbor, Toronto, is their economic center.
The Buffalo Niagara Partnership is strengthening the footprint of our international region. In 2017, we signed an agreement with the Chambers of Commerce in the City of Hamilton and the Greater Niagara Region, Ontario, to offer reciprocal membership benefits to members of all three Chambers.
