Key Dates & Access Quantities 2020-2021: TRQs for Supply-Managed Products

Find out about key dates and access quantities for the various tariff rate quotas (TRQs) for the import of supply-managed goods under the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA), the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP), the Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement (CUSMA) and the World Trade Organization (WTO).

CUSMA TRQs are administered on either a dairy year (August 1 to July 31) or a calendar year. Given that the Agreement came into effect on July 1, 2020, the quantity available to allocate in Year 1 of each CUSMA TRQ was prorated on the basis of the number of months remaining in the applicable TRQ year (i.e., dairy year = 1 month and calendar year = 6 months).
