Canada-U.S. flags

Businesses on both sides of the border have to resist temptation and oppose any legislation containing any new or more stringent protectionist measures, such as Buy American, which create regulatory burdens, impede technology advancements and restrict market and job growth.

Canada and the U.S. have a long history of close cooperation on security and trade. Both governments have repeatedly recognized the need to strengthen the competitiveness of the North American market. Introducing any protectionist measures would hinder our competitiveness and increase costs to North American businesses and consumers.

Earlier this week, 15 trade associations in the U.S. urged House and Senate lawmakers to oppose two legislations pending before the House that would impose protectionist restrictions on federal funds for water infrastructure projects carried out at the municipal level.

We will continue to work with our partners both in Canada and the U.S. to ensure these legislations do not go through.
