Canadian Trade Policy at a Crossroads

Economics Speaker Series:
Canadian Trade Policy at a Crossroads: Navigating New Global Realities

with Stephen Tapp, Research Director, Institute for Research on Public Policy

When: June 6 at 3:30 p.m.

Where: Timlin Room (Arts 807)     

The Canadian economy is at a critical juncture. Its growth and prosperity depend critically on international trade and investment, but long-standing policy goals and approaches are being challenged by rising protectionist sentiment across the developed world. In this complex and rapidly-evolving context, it's now more important than ever to sift through the noise to better understand the new global trade realities and consider appropriate policy responses. In this talk, Stephen Tapp will draw from the main findings and policy implications of a multiyear research initiative that he led for the Institute for Research on Public Policy. He will describe several "new global realities" that are exerting significant influence on Canadian international commerce, review Canada's overall trade performance in recent decades, and propose forward-looking priorities for a trade- and trade-related policies.
