Benefits from USMCA-- the Renegotiated NAFTA


The eleventh-hour negotiations with Canada resulted in the following provisions:


  • The new tariff rate quota for chicken is 57,000 metric tons by year-six of the agreement growing one percent annually for an additional ten years.  The U.S. will be eligible to export 39,844 million metric tons in 2019 under the Canada World Trade Organization tariff rate quota regime.
  • Canada has agreed to provide the U.S. and other country members of the WTO access equivalent to no less than five percent of the previous years total Canadian turkey production.  This will permit the U.S. to export up to 1,000 metric tons of turkey products over current levels each year for the next ten years.
  • The U.S. will have access to 21 percent of Canadian domestic production of broiler hatching eggs.
