Government of Canada announces new working group for poultry and egg sectors
“This working group will ensure the voices of the hardworking men and women who are building and growing our farm businesses are heard and reflected, as we develop a path forward to ensure our poultry and egg sectors remain strong and competitive well into the future. Together, we will make sure our industries are well-positioned to thrive.”
- Lawrence MacAulay, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food
The USMCA preserves tariff-free market access within North America for agricultural trade valued at $119 billion, and the hundreds of thousands of jobs that rely on that access.
Through USMCA negotiations, the Government of Canada worked extremely hard to advance the interests of Canadian farmers and food businesses, including defending and preserving our supply-managed sector from strong U.S. attempts to dismantle it.
Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food Lawrence MacAulay also announced today the formation of new working groups with dairy farmers and processors.
Further information on the working group’s membership will be available on AAFC’s website.
