MCC Shares Support of Open Trade with Prime Minister and Other Government Officials

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Minister of Foreign Affairs Chrystia Freeland.

At different times over the last few months, there has been hope that a deal for a new North American Free Trade Agreement  (NAFTA) was imminent. However, as August reaches the midway point, there is still no deal and over the weekend came varying reports on a deal being close and Canada’s level of involvement.

For the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce (MCC), this summer has been spent touting the importance of trade with our partners. With no end in sight to the current trade disagreement and other trade battles looming, the continued uncertainty for businesses grows. Last week, MCC sent letters to Prime Minister Trudeau and two of his key trade ministers urging the federal government to get back to the NAFTA negotiation table. We also sent letters to Premier Pallister and trade minister Blaine Pedersen updating them on our advocacy this summer.
