Historic Canadian Free Trade Agreement takes effect July 1
This historic agreement will allow Canadians to buy and sell goods, provide services and invest more freely within our own borders, providing more opportunities for Canadian businesses to innovate and create jobs.
The agreement, which was announced in April by federal, provincial and territorial governments, will:
- improve the flow of goods, services and investments across provincial and territorial borders, giving consumers more choice and lower prices;
- commit all governments to reduce the patchwork of rules and regulations that can hinder trade and stifle the growth of Canadian businesses; and
- allow licensed professionals with Canadian credentials to work in different parts of the country. ■
