Canada-European Union Air Transport Agreement text

As a consequence of the need to gain Council of the European Union approval, the full texts of the Air Transport Agreement between Canada and the European Community and its Member States, and the related Memorandum of Consultation are now available (see previous post).

The new arrangements are relatively complex, providing for a phase in of "hard" rights dependent on Canada's policy progress on permitting foreign investment in its airlines.

The Agreement is also unusual in that it contains articles on Environment (Article 18) and Labour Matters (Article 19).
