International trade and investment frameworks are under siege by rising protectionism, the US-China conflict and its spillover effects, Brexit and rapid technological change. The pandemic has intensified these challenges, which are crucial for Canada as a trading nation with significant outbound and inbound goods, services and investment interests.

If you advise or work for a Canadian enterprise facing trade and investment issues, you need to be up-to-speed on the latest legal and policy changes. Join us for an incisive and information-packed webinar hosted by Neil Campbell, Co-Chair –  International Trade, McMillan LLP, and featuring two of Canada’s trade officials who have been dealing with trade negotiations and disputes, Robert Brookfield and Shane Spelliscy.

The session will discuss trade and investment developments that have implications for Canadian businesses and their advisors, including:

  • Canada’s trade relationships with the US and Mexico, including the key changes in the “new NAFTA” (now the CUSMA) and the further round of US aluminum tariffs
  • Canada’s trade relationships with Pacific nations including China as well as the strategic significance and implementation status of the new CPTPP
  • Canada’s trade relationships with Europe under the CETA and the implications of the UK’s withdrawal from the EU
  • The status of the dispute resolution system in the World Trade Organization and the risks for Canadian companies when facing foreign government actions that are inconsistent with the rules governing international trade
  • The new foreign investment / national security review policy adopted by the Government of Canada in response to the pandemic challenges
