Bill

C-30: An Act to implement the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement between Canada and the European Union and its Member States and to provide for certain other measures.

Second Reading.

Vote

Yea.

Rationale

All 28 EU Member States approved the conclusion of CETA and have signed the agreement. The next step in the EU’s approval process will be a vote in the European Parliament, following which CETA will enter into force. A vote in the European Parliament is expected in December. All EU Member States will also need to approve the agreement before it can be fully brought into force. CETA is a top priority for Canada. We are working with our partners in Europe to ensure implementation next year. CETA will deliver positive results and opportunities for citizens in the EU and Canada.

Result

Passed.
