Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) for Agri-Food Exporters

The Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) will help Canadian exporters access European Union (EU) agri-food markets. CETA will give you an advantage over competitors in countries that do not have free trade agreements in force with the EU.

How does CETA support companies across Canada?

On September 21st, 2017 CETA will be provisionally applied. CETA will help bridge the gap between Canadian companies and the EU's 510 million consumers. It can support you by:

  • Reducing or eliminating tariffs on products imported into the EU
  • Improving and expanding market access for Canadian products
  • Providing a competitive advantage with preferential access to EU markets

Find more details and learn about how CETA is a progressive agreement for a strong middle class.
