Abstract

When explaining the CPTPP, the Government of Canada explained that "[i]nvestment is a key driving force for economic growth and competitiveness in Canada. It spurs innovation, creates jobs and connects Canada to global value chains. Canada has a clear interest in ensuring that Canadian individuals and companies are well protected when they invest abroad.” This article discusses the divergent treatment of investment in four key Canadian agreements, the TPP/CPTPP, CETA, USMCA and the CCFIPA, and explores the legal and policy reasons for such divergence.

Keywords: investment, key Canadian trade agreements, TPP/CPTTP, CETA, USMCA, CCFPA, international investment
