USMCA is Good for Canada and Good for Sudbury
The Honourable Amarjeet Sohi, Minister of Natural Resources, visited Sudbury, Ontario at Science North to speak about promote the benefits and opportunities of the United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement (USMCA).
"Trade remains crucial to the mines and minerals sector, to jobs and to Sudbury. That's why the USMCA is so important. The agreement means more opportunities for Canadian businesses and good, middle-class jobs for Canadian workers and their families. When fully implemented, it will help Canadians compete globally and prosper in a healthy, integrated North American economy," said Sohi.
He spoke about the importance of USMCA as an engine of growth and prosperity for Ontario and for Canada. Reaching an agreement-in-principle on the USMCA was an important step forward for North American trade, reinforcing strong economic ties between the three countries. Canada is now the only G7 country to have trade agreements with all G7 countries.
"The USMCA maintains free trade across an economically influential, integrated and competitive regional market of 486 million consumers and a combined GDP of US $22 trillion. It addresses modern-day trade issues and supports prosperity for Canadians by ensuring that our businesses, entrepreneurs, workers, ranchers, farmers and fishers will have continued preferential access to our largest market," said The Honourable Chrystia Freeland, Minister of Foreign Affairs.
