Almost 23% of Canada’s total imports came from the Asia Pacific countries listed below in 2016. This was similar to the share in 2015. Chinese imports to Canada decreased by approximately $1.2 billion between 2015 and 2016, but still capturing over half of all Canadian shipments from the listed Asian countries. Though the majority of Canadian imports are sourced from the United States, Asia as a region (which only includes the below listed countries) captures the largest proportion -- 47% -- of non-US Canadian imports.
