New Free Trade deal with Canada to be negotiated
The UK government has launched negotiations for a new free trade deal with Canada, strengthening our £19 billion trading relationship which supports jobs and businesses across the UK.
- The UK and Canada are close friends with a trading relationship that was worth over £19 billion last year thanks to our UK-Canada Trade Continuity agreement – but there is huge potential to strengthen and grow trade between our two countries.
- That is why the International Trade Secretary visited Ottawa last week, where she launched negotiations for a Free Trade Agreement that will boost our £19 billion trading relationship with Canada by making it easier for British services and exports to reach Canadian markets.
- The new agreement will boost our thriving services sector, promote higher standards of living, reduce barriers for exporters and stimulate Canadian investment – supporting jobs and growth up and down the country as we level up and unite the UK.
