Canada-Chile Free Trade Agreement

In force since July 1997

On February 5, 2019, the modernized Canada-Chile Free Trade Agreement (CCFTA) entered into force, supporting an open, inclusive and progressive rules-based trading environment. CCFTA is the cornerstone of Canada’s strong trade and investment relationship with Chile. Since its launch in 1997, the CCFTA has brought benefits to both countries. Bilateral merchandise trade has almost fourfold since the Canada-Chile FTA came into force, growing to $2.9 billion in 2017. At the end of 2017, the stock of Canadian investment in Chile was $17.1 billion, making Chile the top direct investment destination in South and Central America. In 2017, Canada and Chile signed Amending Agreements to modernize the CCFTA and support an open, inclusive and progressive rules-based trading environment.
