With the announcement of the ratification of the Canada-China Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Agreement (“Canada-China FIPA“), investment between Canada and China will take on added importance and be subject to more scrutiny. As promised, we are publishing an updated review of Canada’s new regulations and rules with respect to Foreign Direct Investment (“FDI“) by State-Owned Enterprises (“SOE“). While the revisions apply to all foreign SOEs, it is clear that they are particularly relevant in the case of investment from China. The article was drafted by Paul Moen and Catherine Walsh of Woods, LaFortune LLP and Madelaine Mackenzie of Power Law/Juristes Power. We are pleased to acknowledge Ms. Mackenzie’s important contribution and thank her and our friends at the firm. Power Law/Juristes Power is a boutique law firm focused on litigation and public law (http://www.juristespower.ca/english/index.php).
