How Brad Wall Introduced TILMA By Stealth In Saskatchewan

TILMA by Stealth in Saskatchewan
by Erin Weir

The Saskatchewan Party had repeatedly promised not to sign TILMA. But it signed the New West Partnership Trade Agreement (NWPTA) last year.

At the time, many commentators (including yours truly) noted that the NWPTA was little more than a renaming of TILMA. I see that the official TILMA website is now automatically redirecting to the NWPTA website:

Effective July 1, 2010 the TILMA (Trade, Investment and Labour Mobility Agreement) 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.

You will be automatically re-directed to the official site of the New West Partnership Trade Agreement or click here.
