Government of Canada opens public consultations for the Trans-Pacific Partnership
Pamela Goldsmith-Jones, MP for West Vancouver-Sunshine Coast-Sea to Sky Country, is pleased to announce that the Government of Canada is offering open-ended consultations on the Trans Pacific-Partnership. Goldsmith-Jones invites and encourages members of our community who would like to share their view on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) to participate.
“The Standing Committee on International Trade is beginning nation-wide consultations on this important trade agreement,” said Goldsmith-Jones. “It is an issue that has complex implications for all Canadians and I know there is tremendous interest in our community.”
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. The committee is also inviting 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 and contact information to the Clerk of the Committee at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Written submissions should be emailed to the same address. More detailed information can also be found on the Committee’s web page: www.parl.gc.ca/Committees/en/CIIT
