Canada and 10 other partners reached a #CPTPP agreement this week, which will strengthen the middle class and benefit Canadians for decades to come. But don’t just take our word for it, here’s what they’re saying:

“TPP = A market of 494 million consumers and a combined GDP of US$10.2 trillion. Good opportunities for SMEs in sectors such as fisheries, beef, pork, plastics, chemicals, etc. Congratulations and thank you @FP_Champagne and @JustinTrudeau”
Martine HébertVP of the Canadian Federation of Independent Business[Translation]

“The CPTPP will further increase access to key global markets for Canadian forest products”
Derek NighborCEO of Forest Products Association of Canada

The CPTPP will be the biggest trade agreement in the world, representing 495 million people and 13.5% of global GDP.

“Because of improved access to key markets, Canadian pork producers can rest easy knowing that their livelihood and that of thousand other Canadians in rural and urban communities who work in the pork industry is supported by this newest trade deal.”
Canadian Pork Council

“CCI welcomes the revised TPP Agreement which preserves policy flexibility so that Canada can design and implement a national innovation agenda and continue to work with our members on scaling up globally.”
Council of Canadian Innovators

This agreement will benefit a wide range of sectors and industries across Canada, from beef and barley to forestry products and seafood. From making our machinery, equipment and business services more competitive, to protecting and preserving our unique culture, the Liberal government is improving market access for Canadian businesses and has secured a better deal for Canadians.

“Great news for Canadian economy and great for Canadian beef producers.”
John MasswohlDirector of Government & International Relations for the Canadian Cattlemen's Association

“With this agreement, Quebec pork will have an opportunity to improve its competitive position in the Asian markets and more particularly in the Japanese market.”
