The New West Partnership Trade Agreement and The Canada Free Trade Agreement

“What are they?”

“How are they being deployed in Manitoba?”

And most importantly: “What is their effect on me, my clients, and my business?”

Get the answers to these questions and more by attending our half-day workshop. This workshop will feature speakers from the Province of Manitoba, who have been involved in negotiating these agreements; ACEC-Canada, who will speak to the real and potential impacts of these trade agreements on engineering firms; as well as the City of Winnipeg, Manitoba Hydro, and Manitoba Infrastructure who are aligning their procurement practices with these agreements.
