Strategic Environmental Assessment of the Canada - EU Trade and Investment Enhancement Agreement Negotiations (TIEA)

Closing date: September 16, 2005

The Government of Canada will be undertaking a Strategic Environmental Assessment of the negotiations for a Trade and Investment Enhancement Agreement with the European Union and invites comments on any likely and significant environmental impacts of the negotiations on Canada.

In keeping with the 1999 Directive requiring federal departments to consider the environmental impacts of policy initiatives, the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade developed the 2001 Framework for Conducting Environmental Assessments of Trade Negotiations (the Framework). It should be noted that the Framework is intended to be applied in a flexible fashion, so that it can be adapted to the nature of the agreement to be negotiated.

All interested parties are invited to submit their views on the likely and significant environmental impacts on Canada of the TIEA negotiations by September 16, 2005
