The CDCE thanks Global Affairs Canada for holding the current consultation that allows it to communicate its concerns and recommendations on Canada’s possible accession to the Digital Economy Partnership Agreement.
After a reminder of Canada’s commitments to protect the diversity of cultural expressions, we will highlight the importance of protecting culture in the context of digital trade. We will then look at specific sections of the Digital Economy Partnership Agreement (DEPA) and make specific recommendations regarding Canada’s eventual membership in this agreement. The reader will find in the appendix the list of our recommendations.
