Government of Canada opens public consultations for the Trans-Pacific Partnership
The Government of Canada is offering open-ended consultations on the Trans Pacific-Partnership. Pamela Goldsmith-Jones, MP for West Vancouver-Sunshine Coast-Sea to Sky Country, invites and encourages members of our community who would like to share their view on the Trans-Pacific Partnership to participate.
These consultations are part of a study launched by the Standing Committee on International Trade on the TPP. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the Honourable Chrystia Freeland, Minister of International Trade, are committed to hearing from all Canadians on the TPP before the government makes a decision on whether or not to ratify the agreement.
The Committee is inviting Canadian individuals and organizations to provide written submissions that express their views on the TPP agreement and invites Canadians to request to appear as a witness before the committee, either as an individual or as a representative of an organization. There is no deadline for the end of consultations at this time.
Canadians who wish to appear as a witness can make their request at any time during the study. They should provide their name/contact information to the Clerk of the Committee at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Written submissions should be emailed to the same address.
