The case for liberalizing interprovincial trade in Canada

Published on: Oct 25, 2021

In the latest federal budget, released in April 2021, the government committed an additional $101.4 billion in spending to stimulate the economy. While most of these measures have been focused on energizing short-term recovery, the budget also included $21 million in federal support to tackle the removal of internal trade barriers. For businesses and industries affected by these restrictions, this is a long-awaited, positive step toward increasing Canada’s competitiveness. Now, however, the federal government must work to advance much-needed provincial efforts to reduce trade barriers, which will require policy changes and engagement from provincial and territorial governments.
