London, Ontario – Leader of the Government in the House of Commons
The United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) is a modernized North American free trade agreement that is good for Canada and good for Canadians. It is the result of Canada’s resolve at the negotiation table and our focus on getting the job done.
To promote the benefits and opportunities of the USMCA, the Honourable Bardish Chagger, Leader of the Government in the House of Commons, delivered a speech at the Canadian Club of London where she stressed the importance of the USMCA in providing stability and predictability in trade with our largest market, and in supporting continued prosperity for Ontario.
The announcement of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, made by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, was an important step forward for North American trade, reinforcing strong economic ties between the three countries, reaffirming certainty in our longstanding trade relationship, and fostering good, well-paying jobs for Canadians.
Canada is the only G7 country to have trade agreements with all G7 countries. When implemented, the USMCA will help Canadians continue to compete globally and prosper in a healthy, integrated North American economy.
The Government of Canada will continue to engage with our North American partners to finalize the details of an agreement that benefits all Canadians.
