A survey of Canadian export behaviour

Date created: 
2005
Abstract: 

This article attempts to explain export behaviour of Canadian firms by testing whether psychic distance is a significant factor in the choice of export market. 250 Canadian exporters responded and the results were analysed. The survey proves inconclusive as to whether psychic distance plays a role in the choice of export markets, leading the authors to conclude that Canadian exports have increased significantly enough so as to require a more complex model involving more than one factor.
