Notice of intent to conduct an environmental assessment of the Canada-Pacific Alliance (PA) free trade agreement (FTA) negotiations
On October 22, 2017, Canada officially launched free trade (FTA) negotiations with the Pacific Alliance (PA). The Government of Canada is conducting an environmental assessment (EA) to inform these negotiations. All interested parties are invited to provide comments on any likely and significant environmental impacts which this Agreement may have on Canada.
The Government of Canada is committed to sustainable development. Mutually supportive trade and environmental policies can contribute to this objective. To this end, the Minister of International Trade has directed trade officials to seek information and otherwise improve their understanding of the relationship between trade and environmental issues at the earliest stages of decision making, and to do this through an open and inclusive process. EA of trade negotiations are critical to this work.
EA of trade negotiations are prepared pursuant to the 2010 Cabinet Directive on the Environmental Assessment of Policy, Plan, and Program Proposals.
All interested parties are invited to submit their comments on the EA of the Canada-PA FTA negotiations by January 4, 2018.
