About the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA)
between the EU and Canada

The EU-Canada Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) entered into force provisionally on 21 September 2017, eliminating duties on 99% of all tariff lines, as well as opening new possibilities for services and public procurement. CETA is a progressive trade agreement which means that it features strong commitments (e.g. on promotion of labour rights, protection of the environment, and sustainable development). Please see more information on the Agreement on the website of the European Commission.

About this Ex-post Evaluation

September 21, 2023 marked the sixth anniversary of the provisional application of CETA. The objective of this ex-post evaluation is to carry out an evidence-based analysis of the economic, social, environmental, and human rights impact of CETA after five years of provisional application. The assessment relies on economic modelling, literature review, statistical data analysis and continuous and wide-ranging stakeholder consultations.


Related to the impact areas, the analysis consists of four sustainability pillars: economic, social, environmental and human rights. Additionally, through case studies, the evaluation provides an in-depth analysis on specific issues, such as environmental goods and services, procurement, critical raw materials, agricultural goods, and conformity assessment.
