Maintaining a Strong NAFTA Cultural Exception

This summer, the Canadian Arts Coalition highlighted artist mobility as the arts sector’s main priority in the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement. Since then, we were extremely pleased to find cross-border movement of business professionals within Canada’s priority list for a modernized NAFTA. Most notably, the Canadian Arts Coalition’s specific recommendation for artist mobility is fully aligned with Canada’s intention of expanding the list in NAFTA’s Chapter 16 of professions eligible for temporary entry.
