Trade Rules and Obligations

Trade agreements reduce barriers to trade, investment and labour mobility across all economic sectors in order to increase competitiveness, economic growth and stability among their signatories.

Standards and Regulations

Inconsistent regulations across international and provincial borders can create challenges for businesses operating in multiple jurisdictions. Trade agreements commit governments to reconcile, harmonize or co-operate on regulations to ease the burden on businesses.

Labour Mobility

The CFTA and NWPTA allow workers in regulated professions to be recognized for their credentials across the country.

Government Procurement

Saskatchewan government entities have committed through trade agreements to provide fair and equal access to government procurement. These agreements also commit trading partners to open up opportunities to Saskatchewan suppliers.

Business Registration

The NWPTA makes it easier for Saskatchewan businesses to register in multiple provinces.

Trade in Alcoholic Beverages

The Government of Canada has authority over the import and export of alcohol across international borders, while provinces and territories each determine how alcohol is imported and sold within their jurisdiction.

Dispute Resolution

Trade agreements contain dispute resolution mechanisms to provide a formal means to address allegations that a signatory is not meeting its trade obligations.
