Initial Environmental Assessment of the Government Procurement Chapter to be added to the Canada-Chile Free Trade Agreement

Closing date: November 25, 2005

In keeping with the 2001 Framework for Conducting Environmental Assessments of Trade Negotiations, an Initial Environmental Assessment of the negotiations between Canada and Chile towards a government procurement chapter to be added to the existing Canada-Chile Free Trade Agreement (CCFTA) has been conducted to help negotiators better integrate environmental considerations into the negotiating process.

The report on this Initial Environmental Assessment is now released for a 30 day public consultation period until November 25, 2005. 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-Chile Government Procurement Chapter negotiations. The Final Environmental Assessment report will be released after the conclusion of the Canada-Chile Government Procurement Chapter negotiations.
