The Canadian Free Trade Agreement

The Canadian Free Trade Agreement was designed to facilitate the free movement of people, goods, services and investment within Canada to establish an open, efficient and stable domestic market.

It benefits Canadians and businesses by:

  • improving internal trade, and
  • making it easier for certified workers, such as trades people and professionals, to practice their regulated occupation in other provinces or territories.

The LMWG was established by the Forum of Labour Market Ministers (FLMM). Labour Mobility Coordinators from all governments that signed the Canadian Free Trade Agreement (CFTA) participate on the working group.
