Consultations on the renegotiation and modernization of NAFTA

The Government of Canada announced that it is seeking the views of Canadians on the scope of the renegotiation and modernization of the existing North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) with the United States and Mexico.

The Government is seeking views on key areas in NAFTA that could be clarified or updated, and on any new areas that should form part of a modernized agreement.

Furthermore, given that NAFTA has been in force for over 20 years, the Government is seeking information on the areas that have been the most beneficial to Canadian exporters.

Views should also take into account reactions to potential proposals from the United States or Mexico where Canada could be pressed to take on commitments to address perceived trade irritants.

All interested parties are invited to submit their views by July 18, 2017.
