General Agreement On Trade In Services Canada
As a member state, Canada is committed to conducting its international trade in accordance with GATT rules. Canada, like other member countries, has fundamental obligations: the service sector is an important part of the Canadian economy – it employs about three out of four Canadians. This section describes how trade in services is making a significant and growing contribution to the Canadian economy and to the economies of most of our trading partners. This is followed by a brief introduction to GATT and various aspects of its implementation under Canadian customs and trade law. The GATS agreement has been criticized for replacing the authority of national law and justice with that of an GATS dispute resolution body that holds closed hearings. Spokespeople for WTO government members have an obligation to reject this criticism because they had previously pledged to recognize the benefits of the dominant trade principles of competition and “liberalization. The GATS category for business travellers facilitates access for businessmen representing service providers from other Member States who wish to market their services in Canada or establish a commercial presence to sell these services. However, the range of activities that business travellers are allowed to participate in under the GATS is much more limited than under NAFTA. That is why citizens of the United States and Mexico should apply for AUTHORIZATION under NAFTA and not under the GATS. The GATS agreement includes four types of service delivery in cross-border trade: The diploma involves at least a master`s degree from a Canadian accredited university or an equivalent degree. Academic equivalencies are determined by the corresponding equivalent services in Canada. GaTT focuses on trade in goods; Trade in services, intellectual property and investment are covered by separate agreements (GATS, TRIPS and TRIM) which are also managed by the WTO.
The requirement that the foreign service provider does not have a commercial presence in Canada can only be established on the basis of the information provided by the applicant. Public servants should confirm that the professional does not seek to provide services to his or her company or employer, which has established itself in Canada, for the sole purpose of facilitating the entry of his or her own employees. This definition defines virtually all public services as “commercial” and already covers areas such as the police, the military, prisons, justice, public administration and government. In a relatively short period of time, this could apply to the privatization or commercialization of a large part, and perhaps to all those who are now considered public services that are currently considered social requirements for the entire population of a country, structured, marketed, under-distributed to for-profit suppliers and ultimately fully privatized and are only available to those who can pay the price.
