Deadline extended to October 31, 2016

The House of Commons Standing Committee on International Trade is extending the deadline for Canadians to submit written comments on the topic of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement. Canadians who wish to provide a written submission in the context of the Committee’s TPP public consultation must do so before 23:59 EDT on October 31, 2016.

Tracey Ramsey, who serves as vice-chair of the committee, welcomes the extension and encourages Canadians to pariticpate in this process.
