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.

PAB2012 was the seventh and final PAB conference.
