Saskatchewan has signed two internal trade agreements that provide for the free movement of goods, services and workers across Canadian jurisdictions.
The Canadian Free Trade Agreement (CFTA) is an intergovernmental trade agreement signed by Canadian First Ministers that came into force in 2017, replacing the Agreement on Internal Trade. Its purpose is to reduce and eliminate, to the extent possible, barriers to the free movement of persons, goods, services and investment within Canada and to establish an open, efficient and stable domestic market.
The New West Partnership Trade Agreement (NWPTA) between the Governments of British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan came into effect on July 1, 2010, and expanded with Manitoba’s accession on January 1, 2017.
Canada has signed several international trade agreements that provide opportunities for Saskatchewan residents and businesses. These agreements increase access to export markets and global supply chains for both goods and services.
