Agreement fact sheets

Telecommunications services are vital to the function of national economies and in facilitating international trade. They connect businesses and citizens to each other, and countries and regions to the rest of the world. Information and communication technologies play an integral role in improving connectivity and quality of life by providing access to services such as online education, e-government and e-health.

The Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement (CUSMA) will build upon the existing telecommunications chapter between Canada, the United States and Mexico, leading to economic development and stimulating innovation. CUSMA also recognizes the importance of the telecommunications sector to Canada’s economy, workers and families. Not only is telecommunications an ever-growing service sector, it is also one of the most important enablers in the modern economy, providing the means of delivering other services that Canadians depend on.
