"As the world's fastest growing top five software company, we look forward to a great partnership and to expanding our employees, customers and innovation in Canada".

"We're going to continue to make an argument that it's not enough to just trade, we have to ensure that the benefits of trade are properly and fairly shared", he said.

Trudeau was also reportedly meeting with Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos in San Francisco, indicating that he's ramping up efforts to get the company's second headquarters in Toronto, the only shortlisted Canadian company on Amazon's radar.

"We know that being open to investment and highlighting our extraordinary diverse workforce that's willing to work hard, innovate and create a future is what it's all about", said Trudeau on Thursday.

Ahmad declined to comment specifically on the meeting with Bezos. Canada has also invested millions to attract top talent and researchers away from other countries.

Mr. Trudeau has lamented a "brain drain" of Canada's best tech minds, saying at a recent Google event in Toronto, "Quite frankly, we're exhausted of Google poaching our best graduates from the University of Waterloo and sucking them down to California".

Trudeau did not say what kinds of incentives the Canadian government is offering to US technology companies to convince them to settle in the country, and instead pitched Canada's "great talent" and the government's investments in artificial intelligence. In California, salaries, sunshine as well as venture capital were all abundant, and the professional culture more advanced, they said.

"The valley is great, but it's actually not my number 1 place where I'm trying to bring talent from", said Ben Zifkin, who runs a Toronto-based social network for businesses called Hubba.

The prime minister didn't answer directly when asked if the current immigration climate in the United States is making his sales job easier.

Uncertainty over Trump's immigration policies has provided momentum for Trudeau's economic pitch to Silicon Valley, where many companies that rely on foreign workers have become uneasy over increasing scrutiny on the H1-B work visa program.

Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff did not specify why the company chose Canada but he said, "We know we'll be able to have a great business environment in Canada". Trudeau will meet with Gov.
