Canadian Pork Council News Release

March 8, 2018 (Ottawa, ON)—Canadian Pork producers welcome the signing of The Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP). Canada’s Minister of Trade, François-Philippe Champagne and trade representatives from the 10 CPTPP countries signed the deal in an official ceremony today in Santiago, Chile.
 
“Canada is a globally competitive producer and exporter of pork and pork products. We have worked hard to develop our reputation as a reliable supplier of safe, wholesome, high-quality pork. The key to building on our success, however, is the ability to access a wide variety of markets,” stated Canadian Pork Council Chair Rick Bergmann.
 
“This deal will provide our industry stability in vital markets like Japan and opportunities in emerging markets like Vietnam. Canadian pork producers can rest easy knowing that their livelihood and that of thousand other Canadians in rural and urban communities who work in the pork industry is supported by this newest trade deal,” Bergmann adds.

Canadian Agricultural Partnership

February 13, 2018 – Ottawa, Canada – Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada

Canada’s agriculture and agri-food sector is a key driver of economic growth, innovation and trade. Economic
indicators show a strong and dynamic Canadian agricultural sector, with a growing global middle class looking
for our world-class products.

Federal Agriculture and Agri-Food Minister, Lawrence MacAulay, celebrated Canada’s Agriculture Day alongside
farmers, ranchers, food processors, industry leaders and youth today in Ottawa, where he officially launched the
six federal programs under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership (see Backgrounder).

The Partnership is a progressive $3-billion, federal-provincial-territorial agreement that will help chart the course
for government investments in the sector over the next five years.
