CETA and the Potential Impact on Canadian Business

Date

November 17, 2016

Time

8:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Location

Toronto, Ontario


Overview

The Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) with the European Union (EU), Canada's biggest international trade initiative following NAFTA was signed on October 30th, 2016. CETA will provide Canadian businesses enhanced access to one of the world’s largest markets, with more than 500 million people in 28 countries, and a combined GDP of $20 trillion. Canadian businesses will potentially gain this advantage before U.S. businesses are able to achieve the same under an agreement yet to be concluded between the U.S. and the EU.

Please join us for a breakfast seminar to discuss a range of business issues arising from CETA’s implementation and other Canadian trade initiatives including the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement. Topics include some of the controversial issues that have made implementation of CETA and other similar trade agreements challenging, particularly in-bound and outbound foreign investment and the investment dispute resolution process, labour mobility and intellectual property protection.
