Canada-EU (CETA)

Canada and the European Union began negotiating the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) in 2009. It is a “next generation” free trade and investment pact that is better understood as a corporate power grab. CETA is a way to further deregulate and privatize the Canadian economy while increasing corporate power and undermining Canadian and European efforts to address the climate crisis.
