Canada issues revised dairy tariff rate quota policies under CUSMA

Global Affairs Canada published the country’s new dairy tariff rate quota (TRQ) policies under the Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement (CUSMA).

The new policies address the sole finding of a CUSMA dispute panel that Canada’s practice of reserving TRQ pools exclusively for the use of dairy processors is inconsistent with the Agreement. The new policies end the use of processor-specific TRQ pools.

The announcement follows the United States’ request for a dispute settlement panel on May 25, 2021 and the panel’s final report issued on December 20, 2021.

The Government of Canada held public consultations from March 2 to April 19, 2022 on its proposed Panel implementation plan.
