Free Trade in Free Fall? Assessing the Impact of Nontariff Barriers on Canada-U.S. Trade

February 08, 2008 // 7:00am9:00am

Drawing on expertise from both sides of the Canada-U.S. border, the One Issue, Two Voices series is designed to stimulate dialogue on policy issues that have a significant impact on the bilateral relationship. This publication examines the extent to which nontariff trade barriers are restricting the flow of goods and people between Canada and the United States and their impact on our economies.

Panelists Michael Hart and Gary Hufbauer will discuss the real cost of nontariff restrictions to economic prosperity and debate ways to eliminate them. Wendy Dobson, Director of the Institute for International Business at the Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto and vice chair of the Canadian Public Accountability Board, will act as moderator. This presentation will be particularly relevant to economists, government policy analysts, members of the academic and business communities, and others with an interest in trade, productivity, and the economic relationship between Canada and the United States.
