The publication also features the following journalist and law-firm authored articles geared to keeping attorneys and in-house counsel in the US informed of relevant business litigation issues in Canada.

Cross-border Franchising
US franchisors moving into Canada face challenges, including language, disclosure and provincial statutes, as well as a recent court decision expanding the interpretation of what it means to be a party to a franchise agreement.

Framework of Opportunity
Canada’s new framework on clean growth and climate change is designed to stimulate the economy and fulfill pledges to reduce emissions and adapt to climate-change issues.

Open Doors to Investment
New developments emphasize the Canadian government’s interest in easing the way for foreign investors.

Trade Uncertainty
The future of US-Canada cross-border trade remains uncertain, but both economies are well integrated, and there’s increasingly unified political action and lobbying by businesses on either side of the border.
