Relationship with the UK Canada and the UK have discussed their shared commitment to NATO, the G7 and the G20 and their commitment to promoting free trade and investment, including the free trade agreement between Canada and the European Union. They have also agreed to take the EU-Canada Comprehensive Economic Trade Agreement (CETA) as a template for a future free trade agreement post-Brexit.
What Prime Minister Trudeau said on Brexit The people of the UK have chosen to leave the EU. The UK and the EU are important strategic partners for Canada with whom we enjoy deep historical ties and common values. We will continue to build relations with both parties as they forge a new relationship.”

“You are a vital player in addressing the challenges that we collectively face as an international community. Indeed, the whole world benefits from a strong EU.”

“Trade deals are always challenging but it should be fairly easy for all of us to get to an improved approach on trade between Canada and the U.K.”

Canada’s priorities The Canadian government seeks to end Canada’s participation in the coalition against Isis in Iraq and Syria and wants to increase its efforts in humanitarian aid. Prime Minister Trudeau also promised to take in 25,000 Syrian refugees and invest $250m in improving the asylum procedures.

In terms of environmental policy, the government promised decisive action on climate change and to set targets to reduce carbon emissions.

Regarding foreign policy, Canada seeks to smooth relations with Iran and ensure successful implementation of the free trade agreement with the EU (CETA).
