  • This thesis examines to what extent globalization has affected the political economy of Canadian regionalism. Using a critical framework, Canadian history is interpreted as the production of a Canadian territorial space, complete with uneven spatial development. With a theoretical framework and historical context in place, the case study of the New West Partnership (NWP), a recent interprovincial free trade agreement, is examined to help explain how regionalism expresses itself in an era of neoliberalism. The NWP serves as an example of the highly complex modern scalar order in which Canadian regions can no longer be considered to be contained exclusively within Canadian borders but also as scales existing within, beside and in relation to a myriad of scales.
