AMM Trading Company/CANOE Webinar: Trade Agreements & CETA – Single Point of Access (SPA)

The Association of Manitoba Municipalities (AMM) Trading Company/Canoe Procurement Group of Canada will be hosting an information session focusing on trade agreements in collaboration with the Province of Manitoba.

The AMM will review the procurement process they facilitate on members behalf, and how their program is trade compliant with CFTA/NWPTA/CETA regulations.

The Province of Manitoba will focus on the upcoming Canada-Europe Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) “Single Point of Access” (SPA) requirements that must be implemented across Canada very shortly.

The AMM Trading Company/Canoe is working to ease the transition to CETA-SPA on behalf of members, through their cooperative purchasing program.

We look forward to meeting with you and answering all your questions!
