This paper will examine the impact on social policy concerning the movement towards more globalized structures of production. Also, the specific case of Canada will be considered. It will be hypothesised that the emergence of the global economy threatens social policies in this country. Central to this is the notion that firms have an increasing ability to get up and go elsewhere due to the existence of free trade agreements. Hence, a central part of analysing the impact of the emerging global economy in Canada and the effect of international constraints on social policies relates to the understanding that globalisation is a process or a development that is currently in progress. Subsequently, this analysis will focus on the extent to which Canada has been affected by globalisation through its involvement in free trade through the Canada-U.S. Free Trade Agreement (FTA) as well as the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). The analysis will also include what can be expected to develop in the future as globalisation proceeds.
