Boost Internal Trade with Key Reforms to CFTA

  • Reforms to the Canadian Free Trade Agreement (CFTA) could ease access to justice for small businesses and individuals and bolster internal trade.
  • Author Ryan Manucha calls for key reforms to the CFTA’s dispute settlement rules to lessen barriers to interprovincial trade in Canada.
  • “Internal trade barriers divert economic resources away from their most efficient uses," writes Manucha. “Restrictions imposed on the movement of goods, services, people and investments across domestic borders curtail the enterprise of individual Canadians and Canadian businesses.”
