Competitiveness and Trade

The Challenge

Competition for investment in the chemistry sector is fierce. Other jurisdictions are moving aggressively to attract investment and Canada must remain competitive.

Regulations and policies from provincial and federal governments must promote shared goals of a healthy environment and the chemistry sector’s ability to innovate and create jobs.

Our Solutions

A sound investment climate should include taxation and capital investment measures to attract new projects to Canada, while improving productivity and global competitiveness. The right policies will put Canada on an even playing field with competitors so it can capitalize on global opportunities.

Chemistry products are the most globally traded manufactured product. Modern and effective trading relationships allow chemistry sector solutions to flow around the world.

Keeping goods flowing

To ship its goods to global markets, the chemistry sector relies on reliable, safe and competitive freight rail services. Overcoming recent challenges in freight rail service is a top priority for CIAC members.

Streamlining regulatory complexity

CIAC members are strongly committed to constant improvement in the environmental, health and safety of their operations through Responsible Care®. Clear, precise and efficient regulations allow environment, health and safety goals to be met while maintaining a strong competitive outlook for the chemistry sector.

Promoting strong fiscal policies

The chemistry sector is a global industry. It is imperative to strengthen Canada’s fiscal policies to attract and maintain global-scale investments by identifying and understanding the competitive landscape in other jurisdictions.
