Trade Negotiations

TRADE CARICOM-Canada Trade & Development Agreement 


CARIBCAN is the economic, trade and development assistance program for Commonwealth Caribbean Countries and Territories which allowed duty-free access to the Canadian market for most goods originating in Commonwealth Caribbean countries. The Bahamas and other CARICOM Member States were actively involved in negotiations with Canada on a free trade agreement to replace the CARIBCAN unilateral preference agreement, but those negotiations stalled in May 2015.
