USMCA legislation passes in Canada

USMCA Signing

Canada’s Senate voted unanimously to implement the U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade agreement. The motion was included as part of a package to adjourn until April 20 due to the Coronavirus.

The Trump Administration is working toward implementing the agreement by June 1st, but that date is not yet confirmed.

President Trump signed the USMCA into law last January.

USMCA will advance United States agricultural interests in two of the most important markets for American farmers, ranchers, and agribusinesses. This high-standard agreement builds upon our existing markets to expand United States food and agricultural exports and support food processing and rural jobs.

Canada and Mexico are our first and second-largest export markets for United States food and agricultural products, totaling more than $39.7 billion food and agricultural exports in 2018. These exports support more than 325,000 American jobs.
