Page 4 of 7
1.1.20 Trade Related Action: means a trade remedy action petitioned by the bidder and/or Consortia Partners,
as well as their respective affiliates and/or subsidiaries in any jurisdiction that relates to a Product
manufactured in whole or in part in Canada.
2 EIA PROCESS
2.1 Canada will commence the EIA process by undertaking a review to determine if any of the bidder and/or
the Consortia Partners, as well as their respective affiliates and/or subsidiaries have petitioned any Trade
Related Actions.
2.2 Canada will identify Trade Related Actions, the market from which they were initiated and the impacted
Product(s).
2.3 The EIA will assess all Trade Related Actions petitioned within two years of the bid closing date and until
the date of contract award.
2.3.1 The EIA will be performed immediately after bid closing date and prior to contract award.
2.4 The EIA will measure the potential impact of Trade Related Actions on three indicators: i) direct
employment (measured in Jobs), ii) manufacturing and supply chain footprint (measured in Jobs), and iii)
Exports (measured $ millions).
2.5 The results of the EIA are not final until the date of contract award, which will be updated to assess if any
new Trade Related Actions are petitioned up to this time.
2.6 EIA results will be finalized on the date of contract award.
2.7 As part of Canada’s assessment, the bidder will be provided an opportunity to review their initial EIA
result to identify errors of fact, calculation or omission as described in Article 4.
2.8 The EIA will rely on publicly available information from Statistics Canada and independent research
organizations such as Avascent, Forecast International, Janes, and Teal Group.
3 EIA METHODOLOGY
3.1 Overview
3.1.1 When a Trade Related Action is identified, Canada will determine the pool of Enterprises that may be
impacted (Identified Enterprises) by the loss of access to the market from which it was initiated.
3.1.2 For each Identified Enterprise, a market analysis will be undertaken as per Article 3.2 (Market Analysis) to
determine whether the Trade Related Action has negatively impacted Product Sales, the viability of the
impacted Product or the viability of the entire Canadian Related Operation.
a) A threshold of 30% will be used to assess the severity of impact.
3.1.3 Based on the market analysis, the impact on the indicators identified in Article 2.4 will be calculated as
per Article 3.3 (Impact Analysis).
3.1.4 The impact for each indicator will be benchmarked against the industry average as per Article 3.4
(Industry Assessment) to determine the severity in relation to the broader Canadian industry.
3.1.5 The EIA will be measured in Canadian dollars. Foreign currencies will be converted to Canadian dollars
based on Bank of Canada’s 12 month average at the date of assessment.

3.2 Market Analysis
3.2.1 Where the Identified Enterprise had no (0%) actual or forecasted Product Sales to the market from which
the Trade Related Action was initiated, no further assessment will be required. The Trade Related Action
will be deemed to have had no impact on the Identified Enterprise.
3.2.2 Where the market from which the Trade Related Action was initiated makes up more than 0%, but less
than 30% of actual or forecasted Product Sales from the Identified Enterprise, risk will be deemed to be
limited to Product Sales. The market assessment will be low and the percentage of Product Sales for
which the identified market accounts will be used in determining the potential impact on the indicators
identified in Article 2.4.
3.2.3 Where the market from which the Trade Related Action was initiated makes up 30% or more of actual or
forecasted Product Sales, the Canadian Related Operations for each Identified Enterprise will be
determined.
3.2.4 Where Product Sales make up less than 30% of the Canadian Related Operations’ Sales, the risk will be
deemed to be for the entire Product. The market assessment will be medium and 100% of the Product
Sales will be used in determining the potential impact on the indicators identified in Article 2.4.
a) Where Product Sales make up 30% or more of the Canadian Related Operations’ Sales, risk will be
deemed to extend to the viability of the entire Canadian Related Operations. The market assessment
will be high and 100% of the Canadian Related Operations’ Sales will be used in determining the
potential impact on the indicators identified in Article 2.4.
3.3 Impact Analysis
3.3.1 The Product (for low to medium market analysis) or the Canadian Related Operations (for high market
analysis) as per Article 3.2 will be reviewed and matched with the most closely related North American
Industry Classification System (NAICS) code in order to identify the latest and most closely related Input-
Output Direct Job Multipliers and Input-Output Indirect Job Multipliers.
3.3.2 The impact on Products will be assessed at the Maturity or Decline Stages of a Product’s Life Cycle at
time of the Trade Related Action. The Product’s Life Cycle will be based on market analysis from
independent research organizations such as Avascent, Forecast International, Janes, and Teal Group.
3.3.3 The following formulas will be used to determine the potential impact on direct employment,
manufacturing and supply chain footprint, and Exports for each Identified Enterprise:

3.3.4 The overall impact on an industry will be calculated as the sum of the impacts on each Identified
Enterprise of that industry.
3.4 Industry Assessment
3.4.1 The following formulas will be used to determine the industry average using the corresponding NAICS
codes; the latest and most closely related Input-Output Direct Job Multiplier(s) and Input-Output Indirect
Job Multiplier(s), where necessary; and the annual industry Sales, Jobs, and Exports from Statistics
Canada’s data files:

3.5 EIA Outcome
3.5.1 The overall impact on the Identified Enterprises will be compared to the respective industry average, in
terms of direct employment, manufacturing and supply chain footprint, and Exports.
3.5.2 In the event a Trade Related Action impacts multiple industries, an EIA will be performed for each
industry.
3.5.3 In the event the bidder and/or the Consortia Partners, as well as their respective affiliates and/or
subsidiaries in the project initiate multiple Trade Related Actions simultaneously, an EIA will be performed
for each Trade Related Action.

4 EIA OUTCOME REVIEW PROCESS
4.1 Canada will provide a written notice to all bidder after the EIA outcome has been calculated.
4.2 Should the EIA Outcome calculated by Canada indicate an economic impact, the written notice will
include the following:
a) A list of all identified Trade Related Actions including the market from which they were initiated, the
impacted Product(s), and the associated Identified Enterprise(s).
b) Sources for data used in the EIA calculation and the date of data extraction. In cases where Statistics
Canada data was used, the data itself will be shared. For other sources, note that the level of
information that Canada may be able to provide may be limited for reasons of intellectual property.
c) The results of Canada’s EIA calculations.
4.3. The bidder is invited to identify to Canada in writing, no later than 14 calendar days of issuance of the
notice, any errors of fact, calculation or omission in Canada’s calculations.
4.4. Canada may request additional information or clarification from the bidder. The bidder will have 14
calendar days from Canada’s request to provide such information.
4.5. If Canada receives new information from the bidder in accordance with Articles 4.3 and 4.4, Canada will
review feedback and information received from the bidder, and will calculate, at its own determination, the
final EIA outcome which will be communicated to the bidder.
