The open invite follows the UK and Canada announcing an “enhanced trade agreement” in March, where both countries agreed to the removal of numerous tariffs to assist with economic recovery following the COVID-19 pandemic.

The open consultation will now obtain views from the public about what future trade negotiations will include between the two countries.

“The Government of Canada is soliciting the views of the Canadian public and interested stakeholders to help define our priorities in relation to future trade negotiations with the United Kingdom,” the online announcement says.

“Through these consultations, we want to hear your views, your experiences, and your priorities for the bilateral free trade agreement negotiations with the United Kingdom and for the United Kingdom potentially joining the CPTPP.”

It is CANZUK International’s objective to ensure all future trade negotiations between Canada and the UK include the removal of tariffs and the introduction of skills recognition between the two nations, allowing working professionals the right to practice their professions and trades in either country without the requirement to retrain or recertify credentials.

As such, we encourage all supporters of the CANZUK campaign to contact the Trade Negotiations Division of Global Affairs Canada and endorse the introduction of these initiatives. Supporters can do so by downloading CANZUK International’s policy paper and forwarding it to consultations@international.gc.ca, along with their own pledge of support.

CANZUK International will also continue to engage with Canadian MPs and Senators to ensure that reciprocal migration, free trade and foreign policy cooperation with Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom are priority issues for the Canadian government in all future diplomatic arrangements.
