Canada launches consultations on reciprocal procurement policies

Canada will always be a strong advocate for Canadian businesses and workers and will continue to pursue policies that promote a sustainable economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, support job creation, and grow Canada’s middle class.

Today, the Honourable Mary Ng, Minister of International Trade, Export Promotion, Small Business and Economic Development, and the Honourable Chrystia Freeland, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, launched public consultations on reciprocal procurement policies in Canada.

Reciprocal procurement policies would ensure that Canada’s trading relationships are mutually beneficial and that countries restricting Canadian access to their procurement markets do not unfairly benefit from Canada’s procurement system.

This initiative will seek views on how best to offset negative effects expected as a result of restrictive measures adopted by Canada’s trading partners, such as the United States’ Buy America measures recently introduced under the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act.

The consultations will be open until May 30, 2022, to all Canadians, including businesses, Government of Canada contractors and service providers, industry associations, labour unions, academics, professional experts, provinces, territories, municipalities and others.

Please visit the Global Affairs Canada public consultations process web page to share your views.

The Government of Canada will always defend the best interests of Canadian businesses and workers.
