Canadian International Trade Fair

Top of page

A world marketplace, the International Trade Fair brings traders from seventy-eight countries to exhibit, sell and buy. Almost 30 000 salesmen and customers congregate in Toronto, where three huge exhibition buildings house miles of display booths. The story of a wine merchant from Portugal and his successful deal with a buyer from another country illustrates the international business the Fair made possible. Scenes of displays, varying from a diesel locomotive to mechanical toys, provide a vicarious visit to this centre for world trade.
