EU and Canada agree on date for Trade Agreement.
EU and Canada agree to set a date for the provisional application of the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement. Statement by Mr Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission and Mr Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada. The Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement marks a new chapter in the relationship between the EU and Canada. Both at EU level and in Canada, the necessary steps were taken to ratify the agreement.
The agreement will now be provisionally applied and will enter definitively into force once the Parliaments in all Member States of the EU ratify the text according to their respective domestic constitutional requirements.
