Joe Biden has won the U.S. presidential election – so what does that mean for the Canadian manufacturing market and its supply chain?

While Biden’s term, which starts Jan. 20, 2021, may result in more protectionist policies coming into effect south of the border, it may also signal the return of a more stable trading relationship between Canada and the U.S., according to industry experts.

Dennis Darby, president and CEO of Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters (CME), issued a statement Nov. 7 underscoring the federal government’s need to renew and enhance Canada’s diplomatic relationship with the U.S. following the at-times-tenuous past four years under President Donald Trump.

He also called on the feds to ensure Canadian manufacturers’ interests are protected during the Biden era.
