Canada has traded goods across this country for as long as Canada has existed and even before then. When goods are traded within a country, it is called national trade. Many products are traded across Canada today. Different provinces are richer than others in different resources so each province trades products that they have an abundance of or that they can grow in that region.

Potash is used to help farmers grow healthy plants all over the country and the world.
