TPP Update

Posted By Stephen Cryne, October 5, 2015

In an update to the post on TPP below, I have learned from a senior Canadian government official today that Canada has secured expanded labour mobility access to new markets, and successfully negotiated in the TPP coverage for Professionals and Technicians which go beyond Canada`s existing Free Trade Agreements with Chile, Peru and Mexico. For example, the TPP agreement goes beyond the NAFTA by expanding the mobility of business persons between Canada and Mexico. This includes coverage of after-lease services in the Business Visitors category and expanded coverage for Professionals and some Technicians at the NOC B level.  Mexico also took commitments for spouses of ICT, Investors and Professionals.

 

US government commitments on labour mobility do not appear to include any provisions for labour mobility

CERC has been a strong supporter of open mobility in trade agreements and we look forward to seeing the full text of the final agreement.
