Abstract

Foreign investment has always played a significant role in Canada's petroleum industry. The authors trace the history of the regulation of foreign investment in general through its various phases: the early laissez-faire regime, followed by the Foreign Investment Review Act, followed in turn by the present Investment Canada Act. They then present a detailed review of the present regime as it applies to oil and gas acquisitions, with examples of recent cases.
