Holder’s Happenings

Visit my website

 

Recently, my colleague, Industry Minister James Moore unveiled the federal government’s proposal to work with the provinces and territories in breaking down Canada’s internal trade barriers that harm the national economy and hurt Canadian consumers, workers and businesses. One Canada, One National Economy: Modernizing Internal Trade in Canada lays out guiding principles for modernizing the current Agreement on Internal Trade (AIT). Eliminating internal trade barriers will create jobs, boost economic growth and strengthen Canada’s internal market by helping to move goods and services more freely across Canada.

 

Throughout the summer, Minister Moore heard first-hand how Canada’s domestic barriers impede trade and deter competition in our national economy. There is a strong consensus across the country that the current Agreement on Internal Trade does not respond to the realities of a modern, globally integrated economy like Canada’s.

 

The Government of Canada is working with the provinces and territories to reform the Agreement on Internal Trade. The time to do this is now. When the Agreement on Internal Trade came into effect nearly 20 years ago, Canada had concluded trade agreements with only two countries. Today, we have agreements in force or being finalized with 43 countries, giving Canadian businesses preferential access to over 1.1 billion consumers worldwide. One Canada, One National Economy: Modernizing Internal Trade in Canada outlines two potential paths for federal, provincial and territorial partners to advance a modern internal trade framework: targeted reform that addresses priority areas of concern or a complete redesign of the Agreement to bring it in line with recent international trade agreements. It’s important to get this done. Forty percent of Canada’s trade occurs within its borders. It should not be easier for a business in Ontario to do business in New York than it is to do business in Quebec, Manitoba or British Columbia. For more information about the Agreement on Internal Trade please visit this website.
