Canada’s sugar industry is working with like-minded groups in Canada and internationally to achieve significant reform of trade distorting sugar policies. The goal is to reduce the impact of trade-distorting policies in the Canadian market while at the same time seeking increased exports by lowering trade barriers in foreign markets. Global (WTO) trade negotiations offer the best prospect of reducing trade barriers. In the absence of global reform, regional and bilateral trade negotiations may help improve access to some export markets but do not address the underlying causes of trade distortions.
