Information from the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade

Please see this information from the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade site. "As you may be aware, Canada and the European Union announced the launch of negotiations towards a comprehensive economic agreement on May 6, 2009, at the Canada-EU Summit. In order to ensure that Canadian priorities are taken into account during the negotiations, the Government of Canada is consulting with Canadian stakeholders with an interest in the EU market. The Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (DFAIT) has now posted a Questionnaire seeking input on issues pertaining to access for goods (including tariff and non-tariff barriers), rules of origin, technical barriers to trade, and cross border trade in services and investment. Given the importance of the EU market to Canada's exporters of fish and seafood products, please take the time to visit the consultations link below in order to identify specific export interests/barriers in the EU market, and any other information you feel pertinent".
