In fact, there is reason to believe that the Canadian number is actually even lower. The OECD also ranks all countries through a “General trade-related index of counterfeiting and piracy of economies.” Canada fares well – ranking as among the lowest rates of counterfeiting and piracy within the economy among developed countries – with a rate that is lower than Australia, France, Italy, Korea, the Netherlands, Spain, the UK, and the United States (among others). Our low counterfeiting ranking suggests that assuming Canada is equal contributor to counterfeits in line with our trade ranking is likely wrong. Instead, Canada is a low piracy country despite persistent efforts to paint us as a piracy haven.
