Initial Environmental Assessment of the Canada-Singapore Free Trade Negotiations

Closing date: July 14, 2004

In keeping with the Framework for Conducting Environmental Assessments of Trade Negotiations, an initial environmental assessment (EA) of the Canada-Singapore free trade negotiations has been conducted to help negotiators to better integrate environmental considerations into the negotiating process.

The Government has conducted initial consultations with the provinces and territories, as well as with the Sectoral Advisory Groups on International Trade (SAGITs). The EA is now released for a 60-day public consultation period until July 14, 2004. We welcome comments on this report, as well as comments on anticipated economic, environmental and policy-making impacts on Canada as a result of the Canada-Singapore negotiations.

For more information, please see the background information on the Canada-Singapore FTA Negotiations.
