International trade

We work with stakeholders from across B.C., other provinces and territories, and the Government of Canada to ensure that the interests of British Columbians are represented in international negotiations, agreements and disputes.

Canada is signatory to a number of international trade agreements under the World Trade Organization (WTO). An ambitious trade diversification agenda has also secured Canada 15 free trade agreements (FTAs) with 49 countries. These agreements connect B.C. and Canadian businesses to 1.5 billion of the world’s consumers and 60% of global GDP.
