Minister Bibeau in the U.S. to Meet with Agricultural Leaders
“To help Canadian producers, processors and exporters succeed in global markets, it is essential to maintain strong relationships with our international partners. Our Government is committed to working with our allies to promote regulatory approaches that facilitate trade while helping Canada’s agricultural sector to bring safe, high-quality products to international markets. The goal of these actions is to increase annual agri-food exports to $75 billion by 2025.”
- The Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food
Canada is the largest market for the United States—larger than China, Japan and the United Kingdom combined.
In 2019, Canada exported over $38.9 billion in agri-food and seafood to the United States and Mexico.
The Western Hemisphere Agricultural Group (Ag5) (Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Mexico, and the United States) was formed in May 2019 on the margins of the G20 in Japan with a mandate to promote transparent and predictable trade rules. In 2018, it represented nearly a quarter of global exports in agricultural products.
