    Abstract

    This year, Canada's federal government passed significant amendments to the Investment Canada Act (ICA), Canada's foreign investment law. This paper argues that, though the amendments generally liberalize important aspects of the country's foreign investment review regime, they also include a broadly worded national security test that allows the responsible Minister to review proposed investments in Canada on national security grounds.
