Ottawa, April 28, 2016
As part of its public consultation in relation to the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement, the House of Commons Standing Committee on International Trade is holding hearings in designated Canadian cities. The Committee’s primary objective is to hear the views of Canadians on this agreement.
The Committee started its cross-country outreach by holding hearings in Canada’s western provinces last week. During these meetings, it became evident that Canadians are very interested in the TPP agreement and want to share their input.
The Committee will hold meetings in the following cities on the dates indicated:
• Montreal, Quebec: 10 May 2016
• Québec City, Quebec: 11 May 2016
• Windsor, Ontario: 12 May 2016
• Toronto, Ontario 13 May 2016.
The meetings will be open to the public. Information about additional meetings will be provided once dates and locations have been confirmed.
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 June 30th, 2016. Written submissions that exceed 10 pages must be accompanied by a summary of no more than 1,500 words. The Committee may decide to translate, distribute and/or publish only the summary.
More information on the process for providing a written submission can be found in the Guide for Submitting Briefs to House of Commons Committees. Written submissions should be emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org
