Canada and the United States: Unidentical Twins - 10/7 Daypass - Trading Up? U.S. Trade with Canada 32 Years after the Canada-U.S. Free Trade Agreement
In 1986, President Ronald Reagan and Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney met in Quebec City and agreed to negotiate the Canada-U.S. Free Trade Agreement, which took effect in January of 1989. NAFTA followed in 1994, adding Mexico. In 2020 both agreements were replaced with a new United States Mexico Canada Agreement (USMCA). How has trade between Canada and the United States changed, and what is the future of this economic partnership and international friendship? Christopher Sands is Senior Research Professor and Director of the Center for Canadian Studies at Johns Hopkins University’s School of Advanced International Studies and Director of the Canada Institute at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, both in Washington, DC. Originally from Detroit, he went to Plymouth Canton High School and then to Macalester College in St. Paul Minnesota where he became fascinated by Canada, which has improbably become the basis for his career.
