Creating economic opportunities for Yukon

Yukon stands to benefit significantly from preferential access to the EU market. The EU is already Yukon’s seventh-largest export destination and second-largest trading partner. Once in force, CETA will eliminate tariffs on almost all of Yukon’s exports and provide access to new market opportunities in the EU. Exporters will also benefit from improved conditions for export. For example, CETA includes provisions that ease regulatory barriers, reinforce intellectual property rights and ensure more transparent rules for market access. CETA will provide Yukon exporters with a competitive advantage over exporters from other countries that do not have a free trade agreement with the EU.
