February 27, 2020 – Global Affairs Canada recently announced the launch of public consultations on the possible modernization of the Canada-Ukraine Free Trade Agreement (CUFTA). The consultation deadline to comment and provide feedback ends on March 16, 2020.

Publication and details on the consultations to modernize the Canada-Ukraine FTA is also published in the Canada Gazette Part 1:vol 154 February 15, 2020.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy announced their mutual interest in expanding the existing CUFTA in July 2019. A modernization of the CUFTA provides an opportunity to increase the Agreement’s benefits for Canadians by further diversifying and expanding Canada’s preferential access to Ukraine and advancing an inclusive approach to trade in order that the benefits of trade are widely shared.

The entry into force of CUFTA on August 1, 2017, was an important milestone in the Canada-Ukraine bilateral relationship. It has generated significant growth in bilateral trade over the past few years and has created commercial benefits for Canadians and Ukrainians alike.

Consultations on modernizing this agreement will provide businesses, industry and all Canadians the opportunity to help Canada define its interests in its negotiations with Ukraine. They will inform how the government diversifies and expands Canada’s preferential access to Ukraine while ensuring that this creates opportunities that will benefit everyone.

All interested parties are encouraged to participate in the consultation, which will take place from February 15 to March 16, 2020.

To share your views or concerns on a potential modernization of the CUFTA, please visit Global Affairs Canada consultations. Additional information on Canada’s relationship with Ukraine can be found on the Canada-Ukraine Free Trade Agreement (CUFTA) web page.

February 25, 2020 –?The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is changing the identification number for establishments approved to export inedible animal products and by-products. Starting February 5, 2020, establishments will receive an ID number based on geographic location or address. The new ID number will start with the letters ABP (Animal by-product).

This replaces the previous system that allowed multiple identification numbers, based on commodity or product manufactured, for an individual establishment. This practice often led to confusion for trading partners.

For exports of animal products and by-products to the United States, the CFIA will provide the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) with a list of new numbers and their corresponding numbers from the old system. Companies that already have an import permit will be able to continue using the old number until their permit is renewed.

For exports of animal products and by-products to the European Union, the European database (TRACES) will be updated so that the new number does not interfere with exports for which certificates have already been issued.

Pet food establishments that currently export to Russia and China will continue to use the old number to avoid trade disruptions and will not be affected by this change for now.

Any new establishment will automatically be assigned an ABP number as of February 5, 2020.

The CFIA is providing a transition period of at least one year based on the type of establishment and importing countries.

If you are planning an export, please contact the Animal health offices in your area for more information.

Montreal Gateway Terminals (MGT) has announced that, effective Tuesday February 25th, 2020, a Force Majeure will be declared due to the blockades that have brought services across most of CN Rail’s network to a halt.

To avoid further gridlocks resulting from this unprecedented situation, MGT strongly recommends that all cargo be rerouted to move by truck. Once the Force Majeure is in place, import rail containers that are left sitting in the terminals for more than five days will be charged storage fees.

The Force Majeure will be in effect for cargo leaving Montreal, and destined to an inland port west of Belleville, ON, such as Toronto. It is recommended that you contact your freight forwarder or make arrangements with the steamship lines directly in order to redirect shipments.
