Another banner year for Canadian exports

February 15, 2017

Canadian farmers have taken full advantage of a number of trade opportunities in 2016, resulting in a record year for Canadian agri-food with seafood exports, with sales reaching $62.5 billion in 2016. This marks an increase of 41% over the past 5 years!

Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) has been working with partners around the world to grow and establish relationships that keep our economy and agricultural industries thriving. Some of last year's achievements include:

Looking ahead, Canada will be working closely with the new U.S. administration to ensure strong trade relations. We will launch exploratory talks with China on an FTA, and fulfil the commitment made by the Prime Minister and the Argentine President last November by completing the final steps needed to allow access for Canadian pork and live swine.
