Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA)

The Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) will open new agriculture and agri-food markets to Canadian exporters from all 13 Canadian provinces and territories in the European Union (EU) market of over 500 million people. With almost 94% of EU Agriculture tariffs duty free upon entry into force, Canadian exporters will have an advantage over competitors in countries that do not have a free trade agreement with the EU.

Before CETA comes into force, preparing to enter the EU market will be important. A number of resources are available to exporters to answer and address any question you may have concerning CETA and the EU market.

For more information on the legislation affecting small and medium-sized enterprise (SMEs) exports to the EU, please visit the Trade Commissioner service's Exporting to the EU - A Guide for Canadian Business.
