Navigating CUSMA: Webcast Series - Protecting Cross-Border Investment in North America Under CUSMA

July 23, 2020 - 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
The Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement (CUSMA) came into force on July 1, 2020, bringing significant changes to the rules for trade and investment protection between the three countries.

This webcast will discuss the consequences of the elimination of investor-state arbitration for Canada and Canadian investors following the enactment of CUSMA, as well as strategies for protecting investments or existing claims. We will discuss how cross-border investors should review and consider existing investment claims and how future investors should carefully consider the structure of their investments to maximize available protections and dispute resolution mechanism.
