Canada ratifies USMCA, implementation clock starts

Canada’s Parliament has approved the USMCA.  U.S. Trade Ambassador Robert Lighthizer issued a statement saying now that the USMCA has been approved by all three countries, a historic new chapter for North American trade has begun.  He calls it the gold standard by which all future trade agreements will be judged.

The
Canadian House of Commons approved the trade deal midday Friday with the
Canadian Senate following suit later the same day. 

Lighthizer
says the U.S., Mexico, and Canada are all working together closely on
implementation in advance of the Agreement’s entry into force.
