Minister of International Trade Diversification, Jim Carr, has announced the launch of a public consultation on Canada’s foreign investment promotion and protection agreements (FIPAs).

This is the first in a series of consultations that will take place as part of Canada’s progressive trade agenda to help the Government of Canada better reflect the views and interests of Canadians, industry and civil society. This consultation provides an opportunity for interested parties to have their say in improving rules and institutions that support the international trading system.

All Canadians are encouraged to participate in the consultation, which will take place from August 14 to October 28, 2018. You can have your say through the online platform PlaceSpeak.com or visit Global Affairs Canada consultations to share your views and concerns.
