Foreign Affairs committee  I would say that our industry is kind of a result of a couple of things. One is that companies that sell into Canada, into our domestic market, are required to put dollar for dollar into the Canadian economy.

Foreign Affairs committee  I don't know about the nuance of the controls that they have in place, but I do know the current regimes in place in the United States. Canadian companies are subject to them when we re-export out of the U.S., the U.S. being one of our largest markets. When we export into the Uni

Foreign Affairs committee  Yes. The Arms Trade Treaty does not impose any additional constructs between nations. As we mentioned, Canada is subject, when it exports out of the United States, to the United States export control regimes that are in place. I think it's exceptionally important that we all un

Foreign Affairs committee  Not to our knowledge. As I mentioned, the regulations right now go from a single company to an end state. If those companies are employing brokers in the process through which they are transacting, what I would have heard would have been the activities that are occurring between

Foreign Affairs committee  First and foremost, most companies are operating on a significant scale in the sector. We're not talking about small businesses. They're generally exporting into global supply chains, the larger firms that have very large export control units within their own organizations. These

Foreign Affairs committee  That's right. We have yet to see the regulation, so we would reserve judgment until we can actually assess what the regulation is going to do to the corporations.

Foreign Affairs committee  I would also like to point out that I'm not sure in your prelude whether or not your facts were aligned. We're 63,000 Canadians, about 800 companies—ISED will tell you about 650—and 4% of our industry deals in small arms, firearms, and munitions. The vast majority of our indust

Foreign Affairs committee  I haven't done any studies on other countries and their behaviours with respect to the UN ATT and whether or not that's changed their behaviours. I would suggest that would be a study that would have been undertaken by Global Affairs Canada vis-à-vis Canada's position and other

Foreign Affairs committee  It's certainly why we called for the government to accede to the UN ATT. We felt that Canada already functioned at a very high standard.
