MONTREAL (WCAX) - Vermont Gov. Phil Scott is in Montreal for a trade forum.

Scott says Vermont and Canada, specifically the province of Quebec, have a longstanding relationship.

He says this meeting will focus on growing economic and educational partnerships, mitigating climate change, including EVs, and giving businesses access to bigger markets.

Last year, Vermont’s first-ever trade and investment representative and liaison in Canada were appointed to promote Vermont and help Canadian businesses expand in the U.S.

Vermont exported almost $1 billion in goods to Canada and imported $1.7 billion in goods from Canada in 2020. Vermont has 66 Canadian-owned businesses employing upward of 3,000 Vermont workers.
