This briefing outlines how the Canada-EU Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) could improve trading prospects for Canadian businesses, what is known about its labour mobility provisions, and how business and government can prepare.

Document Highlights

The Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) is expected to offer business people in Canada and the European Union (EU) freer ability to work temporarily in each other's markets. The deal encompasses goods as well as services, people, ideas and investments, and regulatory standards and other provisions. If implemented transparently and predictably, this has the potential to boost Canada's traded services and address existing barriers.

Across the Sea with CETA provides a primer on three main topics:

  • how the broad outlines of CETA's labour mobility provisions promise improved commercial prospects for Canadian businesses currently or potentially trading with the EU;
  • what is currently known—and the larger terrain of 'unknowns'—concerning the details of CETA's labour mobility provisions;
  • what Canadian business and government leaders should do to prepare before those provisions are finalized and come into effect.
