Canada-European Free Trade Association (EFTA) Free Trade Agreement

In force since July 2009.

The free trade agreement (FTA) between Canada and the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) countries of Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland is a goods-only agreement with an emphasis on tariff elimination. It establishes a commitment to review the Agreement with a view to considering the scope for possible expansion of the FTA into areas such as services, investment, and intellectual property at a later date.

Consult the Canada Tariff Finder to explore tariff information for the European Free Trade Area market under the Canada-EFTA free trade agreement, and other foreign markets with which Canada has a free trade agreement.
