Parliament of Canada ratifies Free Trade Agreement with Ukraine

The Lower House of the Federal Parliament of Canada supported the ratification of the Free Trade Agreement with Ukraine in the third and final reading by a majority of votes.

This is reported by an Ukrinform correspondent.

Now the agreement will be sent to the Upper House of the Parliament, the Senate, and then submitted for signature to Governor General, which is the final stage for a document to come into legal force.

As a reminder, the Free Trade Agreement between Canada and Ukraine was signed on July 11 last year during the visit of Canadian PM Justin Trudeau to Kyiv. Once the ratification procedures are completed by the parliaments of both countries, Canada is to immediately abolish tariffs for 99.9% of Ukrainian imports. In turn, Ukraine is to immediately cancel 86% of duties on imports from Canada, for 7 years.
