1.25.16. Bilateral Free Trade Agreements

  1. It is a government priority to expand Canada's trade by negotiating a number of bilateral trade agreements.
  2. The Canada-Korea Free Trade Agreement provides the lowest threshold for services at $100,000. As such, NAFTA procedural obligations are to be applied to all covered services procurements valued at or above $100,000. When NAFTA procedural obligations are applied, the obligations of the Canada-Korea FTA will also be met.
  3. In general, the Supply Manual refers only to NAFTA and the WTO-AGP, as procedural requirements of the other international trade agreements will be fulfilled following compliance to the procedural requirements of NAFTA and the WTO-AGP.
