International investment position

Release date: March 13, 2014

Canada's net foreign debt was reduced by $98.1 billion in the fourth quarter, edging Canada into a net asset position of $26.7 billion. The decline was attributable to relatively stronger foreign equity markets and a weaker Canadian dollar, which raised the value of Canada's international assets more than it increased the value of its international liabilities.
