[13] The agreement is a breaking point in the aviation world, as it provides for an unprecedented degree of liberalization with regard to traffic rights and foreign investment in airlines. It was negotiated by the Commission under a mandate obtained by the Council in October 2007 and replaced bilateral air services agreements between EU Member States and Canada.

The agreement has significantly improved the links between the respective markets and the intermediate links and aims to create new investment opportunities by gradually liberalising foreign ownership rules vis-à-vis airlines. It includes the gradual introduction of trafficking rights, mutual investment opportunities and broad cooperation on a number of issues such as security, social affairs, consumer protection, the environment, air traffic management, competition law and state aid.
