We may all know that NAFTA is a key trade agreement in Canada and that we are close to finalizing a European trade agreement (Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement – CETA). However, did you know that Canada has a total of 44 trade agreements. Additionally, we have interprovincial trade agreements (e.g. Ontario-Quebec Trade and Cooperation Agreement) as well. This workshop will identify the compliance challenges that government agencies (may) have against the myriad of trade treaties.
