Manitoba Moves To Improve Trade

The Manitoba government is taking further steps to simplify interprovincial trade, by removing more exemptions under both the Canadian Free Trade Agreement and the New West Partnership Trade Agreement. The province announced it is getting rid of: naming and business activity restrictions for companies providing land surveying services in the province, as well as office and practice location requirements for inter-jurisdictional law firms, and residency requirements for individuals applying for wild rice harvesting and export licenses. In a release, the province says these latest moves will give Manitoba the lowest remaining CFTA and labour mobility exceptions in the country.
