Federalism and international trade regulation are popular topics in the legal literature, but the intersection of these two topics remains under-examined. This article explores this important intersection by engaging in a comparative analysis of U.S. and Canadian federalism, and by considering the effect of these countries' federal structures on their formulation and implementation of international trade policies -- which, in turn, may affect their ability to contribute to the development of international law in the international trade arena.
