Agreement on Internal Trade

The Agreement on Internal Trade (AIT) is an intergovernmental trade agreement signed by Canadian First Ministers that came into force in 1995. Its purpose is to reduce and eliminate, to the extent possible, barriers to the free movement of persons, goods, services and investment within Canada and to establish an open, efficient and stable domestic market.

New West Partnership Trade Agreement

Effective July 1, 2010 the Trade, Investment and Labour Mobility Agreement (TILMA) has been expanded to become the New West Partnership Trade Agreement (NWPTA) between British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan.

Built on the success of the TILMA between Alberta and British Columbia, the NWPTA extends Alberta's and British Columbia's commitments under the former TILMA. In practice, the obligations for British Columbia and Alberta do not change under the NWPTA.
