Advocacy Update: NAFTA Renegotiation

With the NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) renegotiation now underway, Magazines Canada is working to provide the Canadian government with insight on the needs and priorities of our sector.

Magazines Canada CEO Matthew Holmes has been appointed to Canadian Heritage’s Ad Hoc Cultural Sector Advisory Group and has met with Canada’s chief negotiator, Steve Verheul, as well as members of Global Affairs Canada and Canadian Heritage supporting the Canadian delegation.

The negotiations could touch on a variety of topics with implications for cultural industries, including magazine media: from the long-standing “cultural exemption” to copyright law and tax policy on foreign advertisers.

Once the negotiations have progressed through the fall, Magazines Canada will consult with members on specific issues or any concerns they may have.
