GLOBAL AFFAIRS CANADA

Consultations on Canada negotiating a Free Trade Agreement with the Pacific Alliance

The Government of Canada is committed to fostering and strengthening its growing ties with our Latin American partners, including members of the Pacific Alliance (Chile, Colombia, Mexico, and Peru). An important part of these strengthened ties is an open and progressive approach to trade and investment that will support growth and opportunities in Canada and the members of the Pacific Alliance.

The Government of Canada is seeking the views of the Canadian public and interested Canadian stakeholders on the scope of potential negotiations regarding a possible Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with the Pacific Alliance. These views will help define Canada’s interests in a possible FTA, identify opportunities for such an agreement to create wealth, innovation and jobs for Canadians and determine how best to proceed in this initiative. The Government of Canada’s approach is one that puts the interests of Canadians and opportunities for the middle class, women, youth and Indigenous people front and centre.

Background

Canada’s commercial relations with the Pacific Alliance

Canada has observer status with the Pacific Alliance. On June 29, 2017, at its Council of Ministers meeting attended by the Honourable François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of International Trade, the Pacific Alliance invited certain observer states (Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Singapore) to become Associate Members. Associate Membership requires the negotiation of a comprehensive free trade agreement with the Pacific Alliance as a bloc.

The Pacific Alliance is a regional integration initiative created in 2011 by Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru to promote greater competitiveness and economic growth for member countries, as well as to expand economic relations with the Asia-Pacific region. Since the Pacific Alliance’s inception, Canada has demonstrated its consistent support for the initiative. In October 2012, Canada became the first non-Latin American observer to the bloc. Canada also remains the only observer to have signed with the Pacific Alliance a strategic partnership arrangement (June 2016), which identified six areas for increased cooperation: trade facilitation and promotion; education and training; small and medium-sized enterprises; science, technology and innovation; responsible natural resource development and corporate social responsibility; and the environment, including climate change and ocean conservation.

The Pacific Alliance is commercially significant for Canadian exporters and investors, as it is the tenth largest economy in the world, when considered collectively. Canada’s total merchandise trade with the Pacific Alliance member countries reached $48 billion in 2016. These four countries together account for more than 75% of Canada’s two-way trade with the whole Latin American region. Canada’s two-way services trade with the Pacific Alliance members accounted for $4.7 billion in 2015. (see footnote 2)

Canada already has comprehensive stand-alone free trade agreements with each of the four members of the Alliance, and deepening our commercial relationship with Alliance members supports Canada’s interests in further diversifying trade and strengthening links in Latin America. Negotiations on an FTA with the Pacific Alliance as a bloc offers the opportunity to build links between overlapping bilateral agreements that would otherwise operate independently (e.g. cross-cumulation), as well as modernize and expand elements of existing bilateral agreements, including improving legal certainty and transparency for Canadian businesses, as well as to seek improved market access and to consider new progressive trade elements, such as trade and gender, environmental protection and conservation, labour rights and transparency. This consultation is also intended to ensure the Government is aware of any other interests or issues of importance to Canadians regarding trade and investment with the Pacific Alliance, in the context of possible FTA negotiations.

More information on the Government’s consultations on a potential Canada–Pacific Alliance trade agreement can be found at Global Affairs Canada: Consulting Canadians on a Possible Canada–Pacific Alliance Free Trade Agreement. (see footnote 3)

All interested parties are invited to submit their views by September 10, 2017.

Submissions should include the following:

  1. the contributor’s name and address and, if applicable, the name of the contributor’s organization, institution or business;
  2. the specific issues being addressed; and
  3. where possible, precise information on the rationale for the positions taken, including any significant impact it may have on Canada’s domestic or international interests.

Submissions by interested parties

Building on existing preferential treatment in current FTAs with each of the four Pacific Alliance countries, the following are examples of areas where the Government would appreciate receiving views:

  • Trade and investment interests
    • Goods of export or import interest (identified by HS/Tariff codes) that would benefit from the expedited or phased-in removal of tariffs and other barriers by the Pacific Alliance countries or Canada, as well as any import sensitivities;
    • Appropriate rules of origin for specific products or sectors (identified by HS/Tariff codes) that would be required to benefit from preferential tariff treatment, given that these new rules of origin would link together those under the existing bilateral FTAs (e.g. cross-cumulation);
    • Origin procedures to administer the rules of origin, including any customs processes that may have an impact on accessing preferential tariff treatment;
    • Non-tariff barriers (such as import licensing, administration of tariff-rate quotas, taxes, lack of transparency), technical barriers to trade (including technical regulations, standards or conformity assessment procedures), and sanitary and phytosanitary measures;
    • Border and customs issues that have an impact on the movement of commercial goods into and out of the Pacific Alliance;
    • Investment barriers, including restrictions imposed on foreign ownership or entry to market, questions of transparency of regulation and performance requirements;
    • Trade facilitation issues (e.g. impediments related to import procedures);
    • Interests related to trade in services, specifically identification of sectors and activities of export interest for Canadian service providers, market access barriers and domestic regulatory measures that either restrict or affect the ability to conduct business or deliver services in Pacific Alliance countries;
    • Temporary entry of business people from Canada into the Pacific Alliance and from Pacific Alliance countries into Canada (e.g. any impediments when entering the Pacific Alliance, or Canada, to work on a temporary basis);
    • Electronic commerce (e.g. any restrictive measures faced by Canadian suppliers of digital products and services in the Pacific Alliance, such as requirements for data localization);
    • Priority government procurement markets for Canadian suppliers in Pacific Alliance countries including at the central, sub-central and local levels; also, note the goods, services and construction services that Canadian suppliers are interested in selling to those government organizations, as well as barriers faced when selling or attempting to sell to governments in Pacific Alliance countries;
    • Any issues affecting business practices when interacting with state-owned enterprises;
    • Application and enforcement by Pacific Alliance countries of intellectual property (IP) laws, regulations, policies or procedures that may result in discrimination against foreign intellectual property, such as brand names, and any requirements for the sharing or transfer of IP or confidential business information;
    • Competition policy matters, including competition law enforcement or other measures affecting competition in the Pacific Alliance;
    • Preferred approach to trade remedies taken on trade between the Pacific Alliance countries and Canada; and
    • Any incidents of unfair business practices.
  • Interests and values of Canadians
    • Corporate social responsibility;
    • Transparency;
    • Trade and gender;
    • Good governance;
    • Rule of law;
    • Non-discrimination;
    • Environmental protection and conservation;
    • Culture;
    • Labour rights; and
    • Human rights.
  • Other topics
    • Development of small and medium-sized enterprises; and
    • Any other topics of interest or potential concern to Canadians related to a potential free trade agreement.
