CETA and the Canadian Supply Management System

August 14th, 2012 - The Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) currently negotiated between the European Union and Canada is very ambitious in its scope. Indeed, the agreement will have implications for a wide range of policy fields such as, for instance, the Canadian supply management system.

For Dr. Viju the discussions around « supply management might hinder the negotiations.» According to Dr. Verdun, however, « this agreement could benefit Canada in other ways. Today, in Canada there is still some strong support for wheat and milk. And these kinds of arrangements may well be eventually reviewed and judged if there are still of this time. »
