Abstract
The Canadian economy is dependent upon international trade for one-quarter of its Gross National Product. The majority of this trade is land-based or intra-Great Lakes trade with the USA. However, overseas trade is important both economically and strategically. Currently Canada's East Coast shipping is of greater strategic importance than is its West Coast shipping. Pacific shipping trade is export oriented and hence does not figure strongly in the resupply of the Canadian economy.
