Trade Pact Would Make Region More Competitive, Speaker Says

Posted on Friday, November 10 at 10:17 by franklee8
In September, the provinces and territories, including Nova Scotia, signed an agreement that will allow certified workers and professionals, ranging from doctors to financial planners, to work anywhere in Canada by April 1, 2009, through the adoption of uniform certification and licensing standards. The Alberta-B.C. agreement, which also becomes effective in April 2009, is part of a broader pact which erases virtually all trade barriers between the two provinces, although it allows for exemptions in certain sectors, including energy. Ms. Beale said a similar agreement would help make Atlantic Canada more competitive in the global marketplace. http://thechronicleherald.ca/Business/539236.html
