Government welcomes Canadians’ views on NAFTA

Posted on 03 June 2017 by admin

June 3, 2017 – Ottawa, Ontario – Global Affairs Canada.

Canada is committed to a progressive trade agenda that creates jobs and opportunities for the middle class and those working hard to join it.

The input of Canadians is essential when considering trade agreements, and the Honourable Chrystia Freeland, Minister of Foreign Affairs, today announced expanded, online consultations with Canadians on the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

The consultations are an important next step toward the renegotiation process. The views gathered from Canadians will inform the federal government’s approach as we engage with the United States and Mexico.

In recent months, the Minister and her colleagues have been listening to Canadians from across the country and from all sectors and backgrounds.

The government is steadfastly committed to free trade in the North American region and ensuring that the benefits of trade are enjoyed by all Canadians.

We want to hear from Canadians, and we invite them to share their ideas, experiences and priorities on the modernization of NAFTA by visiting: www.international.gc.ca/nafta
