Canada-Chile Free Trade Agreement

In force since July 1997.

2017 marks the 20th anniversary of the Canada-Chile Free Trade Agreement (CCFTA). Bilateral merchandise trade has more than tripled since the Canada-Chile FTA came into force, growing to $2.4 billion in 2016. At the end of 2016, the stock of Canadian investment in Chile was $16.5 billion, making Chile the top direct investment destination in South and Central America. On June 5, 2017, the Honourable François-Philippe Champagne and Heraldo Muñoz, Chile’s Minister of Foreign Affairs signed Amending Agreements to modernize the CCFTA.  The modernized CCFTA will support an open, inclusive and progressive rules-based trading environment.
