Canada's Sub-Central Coverage Under the WTO Agreement on Government Procurement

Collins, D. A. (2008). Canada's Sub-Central Coverage Under the WTO Agreement on Government Procurement. Public Procurement Law Review, 17(1), pp. 21-35.


Discusses Canada's failure to include its provincial governments in its commitments to the WTO Agreement on Government Procurement. Canada is one of the only developed states that has not opened government contracts to international competition. This may be linked to a strong sense of regionalism where government contracts are typically awarded to contractors within each province as well as a reluctance of governments to privatize traditional state purchasing generally.
