The “Agri-Food Exporters Guide to CETA Guide”


A new government publication aims to increase trade opportunities in Europe. 

"Agri-Food Exporters Guide to CETA" provides information on the European tariff reduction schedule and negotiated rules of origins to qualify for tariff reductions for producing of goods destined to the EU’s 28 member countries. The guide was put together by The Ministries of Alberta Agriculture and Forestry and Alberta Economic Development and Trade

The guide is a useful resource to help navigate the Canada-European Union (EU) Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) which came in to force provisionally on September 21, 2017. CETA features new border measures such as tariffs and duty-free quotas creating new and expanded market access opportunities for Alberta’s exports to Europe. 

The guide is for information purposes only and should not be considered legal advice. For more information on the document, please contact Peter Kuperis, Director, Domestic and International Trade Policy Section by email at or by phone at: 780-415-8608.
