Abstract: This paper examines why Japanese manufacturing greenfields locate in a particular Canadian province. We find that the location preference is based primarily on the present distribution of Japanese and Canadian firms. A secondary factor is market access, which includes the transportation costs of exporting the Canadian manufactured product to Japan. Other important factors are energy and labour costs. Having utilized quantitative methods to determine that the presence of Japanese and Canadian firms are the main reasons why new greenfields select the province they will locate in, we question the value of using tax dollars to attract investments to locations lacking substantial industry activity.
