Trade Agreements

When you do business with Canada, you gain the benefits of dealing with one of the world’s most open, transparent and stable trading economies. 
The Canadian and British Columbian governments are signatories to international and domestic agreements designed to reduce or eliminate barriers to trade. 

Trade agreements provide preferential market access, making it easier and more efficient to do business. These agreements: 
  • Outline clear rules, increasing predictability and transparency;
  • Reduce costs and increase consumer choice; and
  • Provide  mechanisms to address trade disputes.
