New economic agreement for Canada

In line with the free trade agreement between United States, Mexico (USMCA) and the European Union (CETA), Canada facilitates access to new markets with the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP), signed on December 30th 2019.

WHICH COUNTRIES ARE CONCERNED ?

The CPTPP agreement was concluded between Canada and several states of the Asia-Pacific region: Australia, Canada, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Singapore and Vietnam. Brunei, Peru and Chile will sign the agreement and join CPTPP soon.

NEW BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES

When CPTPP agreement comes into effect, customs duties will be removed for 99% of tariff lines, covering most of Canada’s exports to these countries. Trade procedures are also simplified and more transparent. SMEs will benefit from dedicated business informations to help them access new Asia-Pacific markets. Many sectors are involved: financial services, agribusiness, agriculture, e-commerce, etc.

LEGAL FRAMEWORK

While providing Canada preferential access, CPTPP agreement ensures that all signatories follow strict rules. Provisions have been made for protecting workers and the environment. For example a signatory country may have ability to impose trade sanctions in case of breached labour regulations. The agreement guarantees that local laws must imply acceptable terms regarding salary, safety rules and work schedules. In the field of intellectual property, the text indicates that Canada maintains its current regime concerning the length of patents and copyright protection.
