Trade In Agreement
Reality: Canada protects the rights of indigenous peoples in all of its international trade agreements. TISA commitments do not affect Canada`s ability to provide new and existing benefits and benefits to Aboriginal peoples at the federal, provincial, territorial or municipal levels. In order to preserve the constitutional rights of Aboriginal peoples and maintain political flexibility on Aboriginal issues, Canada`s traditional approach in its free trade agreement is to provide exceptions for Aboriginal groups in the areas of services and investment, public procurement and state-owned enterprises. However, the WTO has expressed some concerns. According to Pascal Lamy, Director-General of the WTO, the dissemination of regional trade agreements (RTA) is «… is the concern of inconsistency, confusion, exponentially increasing costs for businesses, unpredictability and even injustice in trade relations.  The WTO is how typical trade agreements (called preferential or regional agreements by the WTO) are to some extent useful, but it is much more advantageous to focus on global agreements under the WTO, such as the ongoing Doha Round negotiations. Myth: TISA will undermine Canada`s ability to implement the Paris Climate Change Agreement. Fact: Climate change is one of the Top Priorities of the Canadian government. Canada is firmly committed to the principle that trade liberalization and environmental protection should support each other.
To this end, the liberalization of trade in services has the potential to bring tangible benefits to the environment and support the development of various complementary sectors, including renewable energy. TISA reserves the right to regulate and amend the rules in order to achieve national environmental objectives for all contracting parties to TISA. In accordance with all existing free trade agreements in Canada, the draft TISA text provides for exceptions that would allow the parties to maintain and adopt measures to promote or protect the values and interests of society in a manner consistent with their domestic policies. Canadian activist and politician Maude Barlow argued that TISA does not protect semi-public services funded by private and public issues. It opposed a Sn agreement that will prevent governments from cancelling privatization or reducing the influence of the private sector. Governments can only choose to maintain privatized services as they are, or to extend liberalization. For-profit corporations have been able to pursue a sovranational judicial system to avoid national courts.  The anti-globalization movement is almost by definition opposed to such agreements, but some groups are usually allied within them. B of this movement, for example the green parties, aspire to fair trade or secure trade rules that moderate the real and perceived negative effects of globalization.
All agreements concluded outside the WTO framework (which provide additional benefits beyond the WTO level, but which apply only between signatories and not other WTO members) are considered to be preferred by the WTO. Under WTO rules, these agreements are subject to certain requirements, such as WTO notification and general reciprocity (preferences should apply equally to each signatory to the agreement), where unilateral preferences (some of the signatories enjoy preferential market access to the other signatories without reducing their tariffs) are allowed only in exceptional circumstances and as a temporary measure.  Reality: As with all Canadian trade agreements, including TISA, Canada`s immigration laws are not covered by the obligations of the agreement.
