Canada-Chile Free Trade Agreement

In force since July 1997.

The Canada-Chile Free Trade Agreement (CCFTA) is the cornerstone of Canada’s strong and growing trade and investment relationship with Chile.  Since it came into force in 1997, two-way merchandise trade has more than tripled and Canada has become the largest source of new direct investment in Chile. On April 10 2015, the Honourable Rob Nicholson and Heraldo Muñoz, Chile’s Minister of Foreign Affairs announced conclusion of negotiations to modernize the Canada- Chile Free Trade Agreement.  The modernized agreement contains a new chapter on sanitary and phytosanitary measures, and technical amendments to the existing government procurement chapter.  In addition, both countries agreed to bring amendments to the CCFTA rules of origin into force as soon as possible.
