Canada is a world leader in promoting transparency in international trade and in working to maintain support for open trade. The Honourable Chrystia Freeland, Minister of International Trade, today announced that Canada has ratified the United Nations Convention on Transparency in Treaty-Based Investor-State Arbitration, also known as the Mauritius Convention on Transparency.
The Mauritius Convention, once in force, will ensure transparent investor-state arbitration processes through open hearings and access to documents and amicus submissions—those presented by interested third parties—in disputes filed under investment treaties concluded prior to April 1, 2014.
