About tariff elimination under the CPTPP

The CPTPP is a free trade agreement between Canada, Australia, Brunei, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, and Vietnam. The CPTPP entered into force on December 30, 2018 between the first six countries to have ratified the Agreement: Canada, Australia, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, and Singapore. The Agreement entered into force for Vietnam on January 14, 2019.

The CPTPP incorporates the tariff outcomes contained in the original TPP Agreement. The elimination of tariffs under the CPTPP now provides Canadian exporters across a broad range of sectors with new opportunities in key markets, including Japan, and Vietnam. Most tariff lines became duty-free when the Agreement entered into force for each CPTPP country. Tariffs on other goods will be eliminated gradually over “phase-out” periods, which vary by country and are detailed in each country’s respective tariff elimination schedules (see Annex 2-D of the Agreement for the tariff elimination schedules of each CPTPP country).Footnote 1
