CFIA confirms EUCOEA / UK agreements to continue during Brexit transition period ending Dec 31, 2020

Global Affairs Canada issued the following statements on 31 January 2020:
“The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (U.K.) and European Union (EU) are both important partners for Canada and Canadian businesses. Canada welcomes the EU and the U.K. reaching a mutually agreeable path forward on the U.K.’s orderly departure from the EU, which includes a transition period until at least December 31, 2020.
Over the past few years in preparation for Brexit, our government has actively worked with U.K. ministers and government officials, including having our Prime Ministers directly engaged, to ensure a solid path forward for our two countries.
We know that continuity and stability is important for Canadians, as well as for our businesses and entrepreneurs as they export and do business with the U.K.
During the Brexit transition period, all Canada-EU agreements will continue to apply to the U.K. This includes the Canada-EU Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA)—which means that trade between Canada and the U.K. will continue to benefit from duty-free access on 98% of products, and businesses should see no change in how they trade with the U.K. during this transition period.
Canadian travellers should also not experience any changes in travel to and from the U.K.
