Trade and investment liberalization are drivers of economic growth, and the Business Council is a strong proponent of Canada’s participation in trade deals. In an era of slower global growth and increased volatility, it is critical that Canada do everything possible to create new economic opportunities and improve long-term prosperity.

Trade and investment priorities for the Business Council include:

  • Diversifying Canada’s trade relationships, especially with fast-growing markets in the Asia-Pacific region,
  • Strengthening Canada’s position as a magnet for companies doing business around the world
  • Modernizing the Agreement on Internal Trade, which contains long-standing barriers to the movement of goods and services between provinces
