Jordan plays an important role in promoting peace in the Middle East. The country is a natural partner for Canada, and an effective liaison between the Arab world and the Western world.

The only Arab nation to benefit from a free trade agreement with Canada (which came into effect in October 2012), Jordan is a gateway to the countries of the Levant, as well as to the Arabian Peninsula. Jordan is therefore an interesting market for companies making development efforts towards the Middle East.

Exports of Canadian goods to Jordan have grown 20% since 2013, and imports more than tripled over this same period. In 2013, the value of Canadian exports to Jordan was estimated at 65 million dollars; in 2014, exports rose to 78.4 million. As for imports, they have been taking place since the entry into force of the free trade agreement, growing from 21.8 million dollars in 2012 to 62.5 million in 2014. The main products exported to Jordan from Canada were vehicles, wood, wood products, vegetables, paper, and cardboard. Canada mainly imported textile products.

Jordan, in brief:

  • A population of over 8 million inhabitants with an average age of 21.8 (2014)
  • A GDP of over 38.2 billion USD and an economic growth rate of 3.2% (2014)
  • A generous, welcoming land for refugees (Syrians, Iraqis, Palestinians)
  • A stable platform for companies with activities in the Middle East


All companies seeking to develop their business in Jordan or in the Middle East and hoping to learn more.
