Ottawa consults on environmental impacts of NAFTA renegotiation

The Government of Canada is conducting an environmental assessment to provide information to Canadian negotiators on the potential impacts on the environment of the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) with the United States and Mexico.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs has directed trade officials to seek information and otherwise improve their understanding of the relationship between trade and environmental issues at the earliest stages of decision making, and to do this through an open and inclusive process. Environmental assessments of trade negotiations are critical to this work.

All interested parties are invited to provide comments on any likely and significant environmental impacts that this Agreement and its renegotiation and modernization process may have on Canada.
