One year on and CETA is gaining strength

We will continue to keep Canadians and Canadian businesses in mind when we are working to expand trade diversification. It is our job to open more doors and make sure that Canadians have access to global markets.

Jim Carr, pictured with Finance Minister Bill Morneau on May 29, 2018, at the National Press Theatre in Ottawa. Canada's success depends on our government's ability to diversify trade. The EU is the world's second largest economy and Canada's second largest trading partner after the United States. As we look to our neighbour to the south and the intensifying trade situation we find ourselves in, it is evident that Canadian jobs and Canadian families depend on the success of CETA, writes Jim Carr.
