2023 EU-Canada CETA Civil Society Forum

EU-Canada Civil Society Forum under the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA)

Representatives from employers, unions, labour and business organisations, environmental groups, Indigenous organisations, and other interested civil society organisations are welcome to register for a meeting on the 25th and 26th of April 2023, of the Civil Society Forum on Trade and Sustainable Development established under the Canada-EU Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA).

Participants will have the chance to exchange with one another, and with officials of the Government of Canada and the European Commission, on matters related to the implementation of CETA’s Chapter 22 (Trade and Sustainable Development), Chapter 23 (Trade and Labour) and Chapter 24 (Trade and Environment), as well as the CETA recommendations on Trade and GenderSMEs and Trade, Climate Action and the Paris Agreement.

The Trade and Sustainable Development Committee will be implementing a hybrid conference with both virtual and in-person participation. Canada and the European Union remain committed to this dialogue, acknowledging the important opportunity for civil society to better understand what Canada and the EU are doing to implement the labour, environment and sustainable development provisions of CETA, and to provide their perspectives on these issues.
