A ninth and possibly final round of Canada-European Union free trade negotiations takes place in Ottawa from October 17 to 21. The Harper government has made it clear that CETA – the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement – is an important part of the Conservative’s economic action plan. But at what cost to social, economic and environmental policy? Opposition parties are starting to raise questions about CETA at trade committee and in the media. Meanwhile, public skepticism about the deal is growing in Canada, Quebec and the European Union.
Please join us for a free public discussion on the Canada-EU trade negotiations with Members of Parliament. Simultaneous translation will be provided.

WHEN: 3:30 – 5 p.m., Tuesday, October 18
