Supply Management

We will make sure that farmers in supply managed sectors get the help they need to succeed.

Canada’s free trade agreements with countries around the world help create and sustain good, middle class jobs. At the same time, recent trade deals – including the Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA), the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) and the Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement (CUSMA) – present challenges for farmers in supply managed sectors.

To date we have concluded arrangements with dairy producers and processors with respect to CETA, and have recently announced supports for dairy farmers relating to CPTPP. We will move forward to finish this work for all supply managed sectors, including processors, so they receive full and fair support. As CUSMA is ratified, we will take the same approach.

Going forward, we will continue to defend supply management – and will work with all supply managed sectors to develop a vision for the future.
