Implementation of the Canada-United Kingdom Trade Continuity Agreement
On January 1, 2021, the United Kingdom (U.K.) departed the European Union (EU) Single Market, thus losing the preferential terms of trade that have been applied under the Canada-EU Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) since September 21, 2017.
As of April 1st, 2021 Canada and the U.K. have agreed to a transitional trade agreement that replicates and preserves access to the benefits provided in CETA on a bilateral basis.
Entitlement to the tariff benefits offered under the CUKTCA is determined in accordance with the Protocol on Rules of Origin and Origin Procedures of CETA, as incorporated by reference in the CUKTCA.
A blank CUKTCA form is available on our website in the “Forms” section.
