Canada is holding consultations
Implemented and administered by the department in accordance with the Export and Import Permits Act (EIPA), TRQs for dairy, poultry and egg products are a key pillar of Canada’s supply management system and make significant contributions to the national economy.
With the implementation of the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) and the Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement (CUSMA), the number of supply-managed TRQs administered by the department increased from 18 to 54. Given the significant increase, the department undertook this broad-based engagement exercise to hear from stakeholders.
The feedback received from Phase II of the consultations will inform the decisions of the Minister of Small Business, Export Promotion and International Trade in developing long-term TRQ policies. The long-term allocation and administration policies for each TRQ will be published on September 1, 2021.
Who should participate?
The Government of Canada would like to hear from all stakeholders with an interest in this matter, including:
- the Canadian public;
- provincial and territorial governments;
- producers, processors, further processors, distributors, retailers, importers;
- national and provincial industry associations;
- small- and medium-sized business owners;
- national, provincial, territorial and regional associations;
- international trading partners; and
- any other interested stakeholders.
Participants are encouraged to review the background information including the Summary Report on Public Consultations: Phase I.
How to participate
To participate in Phase II of the consultations, interested parties are asked to review the policy options and provide comments before the close of the consultation period ending on March 5, 2021.
