Consulting Canadians on trade with Asia-Pacific nations

The Government of Canada is committed to strengthening its economic relationship with Asia-Pacific nations, including with the remaining members of what was the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP): Australia, Brunei, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, and Vietnam.

The Government of Canada’s approach is one that puts the interests of middle-class Canadians and opportunities for women, youth and Indigenous people front and cen­tre. This is an occasion to re-evaluate what new opportunities may exist for Can­adians, particularly small and medium-sized businesses, going forward, and for Canada to set the terms of trade in the region.

It is through this lens that the Government of Canada is seeking the views of the Canadian public and interested Canadian stakeholders

On September 30, 2017, the Government of Canada published a Gazette Notice to formally launch public consultations to seek views of Canadians on the opportunities that exist now to pursue free, fair and progressive trade throughout the Asia-Pacific. The Notice builds on the previous extensive public consultations on the original TPP (launched November 2015). The notice seeks submissions over a 30-day period, ending on October 30, 2017.

Submissions should include the following:

  1. Your name and address and, if applicable, the name of your organization, institution or business;
  2. the specific issues being addressed; and
  3. where possible, precise information on the rationale for the positions taken, including any significant impact they may have on Canada’s domestic or international interests.
