This is a very good deal for Canada, especially to know that [with] your number one trading partner, the United States, where 75 percent of your exports go, do you now have an updated, modernized agreement… . You can always come out with so-called “win-win” solutions, and that`s it. We`re here. Bruce Heyman, former U.S. Ambassador to Canada (December 10, 2019) “The new NAFTA (CUSMA) is the most advanced and comprehensive trade agreement ever concluded. It`s good for #FirstNations and Canada. The integration #Indigenous peoples and respect for our rights improves results and economic security. ” – Perry Bellegarde, AFN National Chief (July 16, 2019) On December 10, 2019, Canada, the United States and Mexico agreed to update elements of the new North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) to improve the final outcome and pave the way for ratification and implementation of the Canada-U.S.-Mexico Agreement (CUSMA) in all three countries.
Changes have been made in the areas of dispute resolution, labour, the environment, intellectual property and rules of origin. Implementation of the new NAFTA will strengthen strong economic ties between the three countries and strengthen North America`s global competitiveness. It is important that the new agreement preserves and improves the integrated and virtually tariff-free market in North America by reducing bureaucracy and reducing the administrative burden on importers and exporters. 2 The following definitions apply in this section and in sections 3 to 20. (3) subsection (2) does not apply to the means under Schedule 14-C of the agreement and to procedures adopted in accordance with Schedule 14-C of the agreement. Nafta was the first free trade agreement to link the environment and trade through a landmark parallel agreement on environmental cooperation, the North American Environmental Cooperation Agreement (NAAEC). The obligations of the agreement apply only to mail (i.e. no mail) submitted by other parties to CUSMA, which is reflected in Canada`s approach to implementation.
