News Release

November 10, 2017 - Ottawa, Ontario - Global Affairs Canada

Canada and China have a long-standing relationship in the realms of trade, science, culture and education. Expanding trade, as part of a comprehensive, longer-term strategic approach to this relationship, is a priority for the Government of Canada and the best way to secure more opportunities and good-paying jobs for the middle class.

As part of the government’s commitment to transparency and openness, Global Affairs Canada conducted public consultations on a possible Canada-China free trade agreement. More than 600 stakeholders and partners, including businesses and industry associations, academics, labour unions, non-governmental organizations and Indigenous groups, took part in the consultations.‎

Today, Global Affairs Canada published a report summarizing what it has heard from a wide range of Canadians during the public consultation period. The Government of Canada remains committed to hearing from Canadians as it continues this consultation process.
