On 9 December 2020, the Minister of Small Business, Export Promotion and International Trade introduced Bill C-18, An Act to implement the Agreement on Trade Continuity between Canada and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (Canada-United Kingdom Trade Continuity Agreement Implementation Act), in the House of Commons and it was given first reading.

Bill C-18 implements the Agreement on Trade Continuity between Canada and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

The general provisions of the enactment set out rules of interpretation and specify that no recourse is to be taken on the basis of sections 10 to 15 or any order made under those sections, or on the basis of the provisions of the Agreement, without the consent of the Attorney General of Canada.

Part 1 approves the Agreement, provides for the payment by Canada of its share of the expenditures associated with the operation of the institutional and administrative aspects of the Agreement and gives the Governor in Council the power to make orders in accordance with the Agreement.

Part 2 amends certain Acts to bring them into conformity with Canada’s obligations under the Agreement and contains a transitional provision.

Part 3 contains a coordinating amendment and the coming-into-force provision.
