Current status: Open
Opens on May 04, 2020. Stakeholders have until 11:59 p.m. (Pacific Time) on May 22, 2020 to submit their responses, comments, and suggestions. The Government of Canada is committed to hearing from Canadians on this important subject and will ensure that Canadians continue to have the opportunity to provide their views.
In keeping with Global Affairs Canada’s policy, the Government of Canada is seeking input from Canadians on the administration of two new Tariff Rate Quotas (TRQs) for sugar and sugar-containing products to the United States established under the Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement (CUSMA), in order to develop administration policies.
These TRQs are for:
- Sugar-Containing Products for Export to the United States under CUSMA
- Refined Sugar for Export to the United States under CUSMA
To ensure efficiency and effectiveness in developing and administering new administration policies, the Government of Canada is seeking the views of stakeholders with an interest in the administration of these two new quotas.
Purpose of consultation
The purpose of this consultation is to hear stakeholders’ views specifically on the administration of these quotas, including the allocation methodology, the eligibility criteria, the return policy, the reallocation policy and the under-utilization policy.
The information collected as a result of this consultative exercise will assist Global Affairs Canada to develop administration policies for the new TRQs under CUSMA.
