Premiers Working to Sustain Economic Recovery

Internal Trade
Premiers continue to build on the Council of the Federation’s recent achievements to further increase the free flow of workers, capital, goods and services in Canada through improvements to the Agreement on Internal Trade (AIT).

Premiers welcomed the agreement by ministers responsible to achieve full labour mobility for financial services and directed that this work be completed by July 1, 2011. Premiers also directed ministers responsible for Internal Trade to reconcile extra- provincial corporate registration and reporting requirements by December 31, 2010 and to consider the AIT’s Person-to-Government Dispute Resolution Mechanism.
