Canada-EU CETA Civil Society Forum Call for Participation (2020)

Canada-EU Civil Society Forum under the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA)

Representatives from employers, unions, labour and business organizations, environmental groups, Indigenous organizations, and other relevant civil society organizations are welcome to register for a meeting on the 8th and 9th of December 2020, of the Civil Society Forum, established under the Canada-EU Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA).

Participants will have the chance to exchange with one another, and with officials of the Government of Canada and the European Commission, on matters related to the implementation of CETA’s Chapter 22 (Trade and Sustainable Development), Chapter 23 (Trade and Labour) and Chapter 24 (Trade and Environment),as well as the recommendations on Trade and Gender, SMEs and Trade, Climate Action and the Paris Agreement, and other inclusive trade related issues.

As result of the challenges posed by COVID-19, including physical distancing, the Trade and Sustainable Development Committee will be unable to facilitate a longer, in-person program as per last year and we appreciate your patience and understanding. Canada and the European Union remain committed to this dialogue, acknowledging the important opportunity for civil society to better understand what Canada and the EU are doing to implement the labour, environment and sustainable development provisions of CETA, and to provide their perspectives on these issues.
