Public release of the initial environmental assessment and the summary of the initial gender-based analysis plus of the Canada-United Kingdom Free Trade Agreement negotiations
In accordance with the Cabinet Directive on the Environmental Assessment of Policy, Plan and Program Proposals, Global Affairs Canada (GAC) is committed to conducting environmental assessments for all trade and investment negotiations using a process that requires interdepartmental coordination and public consultation. The objectives of the environmental assessment of a trade agreement are
- (1) to assist Canadian negotiators to integrate environmental considerations into the negotiating process by providing information on the environmental impacts of a proposed trade and/or investment agreement; and
- (2) to document how environmental factors are being considered in the course of trade negotiations.
The Government of Canada is committed to sustainable development. Mutually supportive trade and environmental policies can contribute to this objective. To this end, the Minister of International Trade, Export Promotion, Small Business and Economic Development has directed trade officials to seek information and otherwise improve their understanding of the relationship between trade and environmental issues at the earliest stages of decision making, and to do this through an open and inclusive process. Environmental assessments of trade negotiations are critical to this work.
The Government of Canada is committed to the advancement of an inclusive approach to trade that seeks to ensure the benefits and opportunities resulting from free trade agreements (FTAs) are more widely shared, including with under-represented groups in Canada’s economy and trade, such as women, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), and Indigenous peoples. In this regard, the Government has committed to conduct a comprehensive quantitative and qualitative chapter-by-chapter gender-based analysis plus (GBA Plus) process to inform Canada-U.K. FTA negotiations through an examination of gender and other diversity considerations. The GBA Plus aims at providing a better understanding of the potential effects and opportunities of a Canada-U.K. FTA on all Canadians — workers, producers, business owners, entrepreneurs, and, where possible, consumers. In this regard, the GBA Plus will also help Canadian officials in negotiations with the United Kingdom identify opportunities for Canada to pursue new gender-responsive and inclusive trade provisions. For more information on GBA Plus analysis of trade negotiations, please see the Global Affairs Canada webpage.
On December 9, 2020, Minister Ng introduced legislation in the House of Commons to implement the Canada-U.K. Trade Continuity Agreement (TCA). The TCA entered into force on April 1, 2021, and provides stability and predictability in trade for both countries following the U.K.’s withdrawal from the European Union. Under the terms of the TCA, the Parties committed to enter into comprehensive FTA negotiations within one year of the TCA’s entry into force and to work towards concluding a comprehensive trade agreement tailored to the bilateral relationship by April 1, 2024. Negotiations were launched by Minister Ng and U.K. Secretary of State for Trade Anne-Marie Trevelyan on March 24, 2022.
On March 13, 2021, the Government of Canada published the Notice of intent to conduct impact assessments, including an initial environmental assessment and gender-based analysis plus, on possible Canada-United Kingdom bilateral trade negotiations. In light of the input received from stakeholders, Indigenous peoples, and Canadians, the Government of Canada released on August 5, 2022, the initial environmental assessment and the summary of the initial GBA Plus of the Canada-U.K. FTA negotiations.
All interested parties are invited to submit their comments on the initial environmental assessment and the summary of the initial GBA Plus of the Canada-U.K. FTA negotiations by October 5, 2022. Included in the summary of the initial GBA Plus is a set of questions for consideration, but comments on any issue of interest will be accepted.
Once negotiations conclude, and prior to ratification of the final FTA, a final environmental assessment and a GBA Plus will be undertaken to assess the potential impacts of the negotiated outcome on the environment in Canada and beyond, and on gender and other diversity considerations in Canada.
The Government of Canada is seeking the views of under-represented groups in trade such as women, Indigenous peoples and SMEs, as well as industry stakeholders, non-governmental organizations, and all interested Canadian citizens.
