Canada: Canada Revises Dairy Farmer Compensation Schedule

Commodities

Canada will accelerate payment of the remaining $1.1 billion USD compensation for estimated losses attributable to market access ceded in Pacific rim and European trade deals over three years (rather than the previously announced seven-year period). Poultry and egg farmers will receive more than $530 million USD compensation in the form of government investment programs over ten years for market access ceded in the same trade agreements. Anticipated compensation for market access ceded in the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement is not included in the above totals.
