Canada’s interprovincial trade barriers tell an engrossing story of our country’s struggle to pursue an enduring singleness, despite a staggering diversity in climate, topography, demography and economics. The tale of our economic union is woven into the nation’s industrial outputs - from turkeys and potash, to margarine and duvets, and of course, booze. Join Ryan Manucha as he traces the story of interprovincial trade to the present day, unearthing the intergenerational battles that pit national and local ambitions against one another, as well as the sacrifices and trade-offs that Canadians would have to make in order to liberalize internal trade.

This webinar will include a 30-minute presentation followed by a 15-minute question and answer period where attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions directly to the presenter.

Incentives matter! Because of this: Canadian students, and students studying in Canada, who complete the follow-up survey will receive a completion certificate that can be used to bolster their professional portfolio or LinkedIn profile and a $10 Amazon gift card for book purchases.
