CPTPP

GROWING CANADIAN CANOLA

WHAT CANADIANS NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE
COMPREHENSIVE AND PROGRESSIVE TRANS-PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP

Canadian Canola Creates:

The Comprehensive and Progressive Trans-Pacific Partnership is a pivotal opportunity for the Canadian canola industry and our national economy.

Currently, we export 90% of our canola, but heavy tariffs in key markets – like Japan’s 16% tariff on canola oil – prevent us from receiving full value and hurt our chances of breaking into new markets.

By removing tariffs in key markets and implementing measures that prevent other barriers to trade, the CPTPP will grow our market access and ensure Canadian canola remains competitive in the global market.
