"The Government of Ontario has established a Feed-in Tariff Program, in which electricity generated by using renewable energy (e.g. solar and wind energy) is subsidized.
The Program sets forth certain local content requirements, which accords less favorable treatments to imported equipments than those made in Ontario.
These requirements imposed by the province of Ontario are inconsistent with the Canada’s obligations under the WTO Agreement. Thus, Japan requested for consultations with the Canadian government."
