Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey is headed to Canada as leader of an economic development mission that aims to boost the state's image for Canadian investors.

Ducey will meet with Canadian political and business leaders during the four-day trip that kicks off Tuesday. He's accompanied by several business leaders, including the president of the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the president of Tucson Electric Power.

Ducey plans to meet with Ontario's premier and deliver an address at the Canadian Club of Toronto, among other meetings. He also will ring the bell to open the Toronto Stock exchange on Thursday.

The governor's office says Canada is Arizona's second largest trading partner.
