Ontario Chamber responds to specific provisions of Trans-Pacific Partnership
OCC urges federal government to consider impact of the trade agreement on auto industry
In a letter submitted to Federal Minister Navdeep Bains, the Ontario Chamber of Commerce (OCC) urged the federal government to closely examine the provisions of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) with an eye to domestic industry. In particular, it should consider the impact of these provisions on Canada’s auto industry.
The outcomes of the TPP negotiations underscore the need for a targeted and coherent intergovernmental strategy for Ontario’s manufacturing sector, a need the OCC has stressed previously in Emerging Stronger 2015.
