ABSTRACT
The Canada-EU Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) is an international agreement that works to further integrate the economies of Canada and the European Union in both goods and services. CETA brings with it significant changes in seafood trade policy, with 100% of EU tariffs on fish and seafood products eliminated within seven years of its signing along with domestic policy changes for the province. An analysis of the finalized trade agreement will be discussed as well as community and government responses to this agreement. The disagreements over the impacts of this agreement, and the need for CETA to be contextualized for the province and the Great Northern Peninsula was the main justification for this research. Policy implications of CETA include changes to government investment in the fishery and domestic processor protections, both of which elicit disagreements at the regional and provincial level.
