The New West Partnership Trade Agreement and The Canada Free Trade Agreement
If you’re like many, you have some questions about these agreements:
“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.
Cost: $85.00 + GST
Cost includes hot breakfast and course materials.
