In the 12 months since the provisional implementation of the EU-Canada Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) in September 2017, UK exports of goods to Canada have increased to £6.15 billion – a rise of 13.7%.


This is a significant increase in comparison to the 5 years prior to the introduction of the agreement, which saw trade increase by an average of 3.9% per annum.

Both the UK and Canadian Prime Ministers have committed to transition CETA into a bilateral agreement that will allow UK and Canadian companies to benefit from free and frictionless trade after the UK leaves the European Union.
