Statement by the Foreign Affairs Minister on the North American Free Trade Agreement

Global Affairs Canada Jul 20, 2017

The Honorable Chrystia Freeland, Canada's Minister of Foreign Affairs, today made the following statement on the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

“NAFTA supports millions of middle class jobs in Canada, the United States and Mexico. We welcome the opportunity to modernize NAFTA to reflect new realities — and to integrate progressive, free, and fair approaches to trade and investment. 

“Today’s report from the United States is part of its internal process and is required under U.S. Trade Promotion Authority legislation.

“We continue to consult with Canadians on the modernization of NAFTA, and invite all Canadians to share their ideas, perspectives, and priorities — including through our online consultation.

“When negotiations begin, we will be ready to work with our partners to modernize NAFTA, while defending Canada's national interest and standing up for our values.

“Canada is the top customer of the United States. Canada buys more goods from the U.S. than China, Japan, and the United Kingdom combined.”
