How you can benefit from free trade agreements
We have been delivering free trade agreement (FTA) outreach sessions in all of B.C.'s regions to inform you about the economic opportunities and competitive advantages negotiated in international and domestic FTAs. The free sessions help to increase awareness about Canada's FTAs and how to use their benefits, help to identify trade barriers, and are designed to help create jobs and assist with post-COVID recovery. If you are new to exporting or are looking to diversify your export or import markets, check our upcoming sessions in the events calendar.
If you are a local government official wanting to learn about your procurement obligations under FTAs, or an economic development official hoping to learn more to share with your clients, we can help with a free session!
Since 2019, more than 3,000 people have participated in over 80 in-person and virtual sessions held across all regions of B.C.
