The Honourable Mary Ng, Minister of Small Business, Export Promotion and International Trade, issued the following statement in response to the United States’ request for the establishment of a dispute settlement panel regarding Canada’s administration of its dairy tariff rate quota (TRQ) policies under the Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement (CUSMA):

“Canada is a strong proponent of rules-based multilateral trade and believes that international trade will play an important role in the global recovery from COVID-19.

“We take our obligations under international agreements seriously. This includes those under CUSMA with the United States, our closest trading partner.

“Canada is disappointed that the United States has requested a dispute settlement panel.

“Under CUSMA, Canada agreed to provide some additional market access to the United States for dairy while successfully defending our supply management system and dairy industry.”
