Canada's spy agency has issued a warning about the national security risk posed by some foreign investment — but isn't saying which state-owned enterprises and foreign state actors it's particularly worried about.

The message was delivered in the Canadian Security Intelligence Service's 2019 annual public report, tabled in Parliament today.

"Economic espionage activities in Canada continue to increase in breadth, depth and potential economic impact. Hostile foreign intelligence services or people who are working with the tacit or explicit support of foreign states, attempt to gather political, economic, commercial, academic, scientific or military information through clandestine means in Canada," the report says.
