Agreement on Internal Trade
The province of Saskatchewan is a signatory to the Agreement on Internal Trade (AIT), an intergovernmental trade agreement signed by Canadian First Ministers that came into force in 1995. Its purpose is to reduce and eliminate, to the extent possible, barriers to the free movement of persons, goods, services and investment within Canada and to establish and open efficient and stable domestic market.
