Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Agreement (FIPA)

FIPA is an acronym that stands for Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Agreement. Canada currently has 24 FIPAs with different partner countries, although this acronym is frequently used in the media to refer specifically to the Canada-China investment treaty.  Distinct from Free Trade Agreements (FTAs), FIPAs are bilateral agreements made by the Government of Canada to encourage foreign investment through a framework of legally-binding obligations and rights.

It's time to start buying Canadian

If governments are using public funds to purchase goods and services in an effort to stimulate a depressed economy, then it's a no-brainer that those products should be made at home. When governments build infrastructure or purchase equipment, they must steer maximum benefit toward tax-paying citizens: creating jobs, stimulating industries and strengthening communities.

The practice of domestic procurement is both logical and common. It's widely used by countries throughout the world. And, for the most part, it's totally legal: Even under the terms of NAFTA and the WTO, sub-national governments have full powers to source locally, and national level governments have great leeway to favour domestic suppliers. Why then has the U.S.
