 WTO | Trade policy review - Canada 1998
Canada has thus been actively participating in all aspects of current work in the WTO, arguing that the core of such work should be implementing the Marrakesh built-in agenda and developing the programme agreed in Singapore.

Canada will continue to address these concerns and uphold the integrity of its social policies by ensuring that social impacts are considered fully in the formulation of trade policy initiatives.

The area open for Canada goose hunting during this season will be the same as last year, including all of Tioga, Broome, Putnam, and Westchester Counties, and portions of Chemung, Delaware, Sullivan, Orange, Rockland, Dutchess, Nassau and Suffolk Counties.
