Below is a list of the countries and trade blocs with which Canada has ongoing free trade agreements.  Israel is an important economic partner for Canada in the Middle East and North Africa, with a wide range of trade opportunities, including trade and investment. The multilateral framework sets out a common vision for housing and lays the groundwork for bilateral agreements on the implementation of important initiatives in the national housing strategy. Canada has signed free trade agreements with the United States, the United States and Mexico (NAFTA), Costa Rica, Chile, Israel, Colombia, Peru and EFTA. It also concluded discussions with Jordan. Global Affairs Canada is responsible for the Canada-Israel agreement on bilateral cooperation in industrial research and development, which commits both sides to allocate up to $1 million annually to industrial research and development with Israel. This funding is managed by the Canada-Israel Foundation for Industrial Research and Development. The provinces and territories provide federal funds to cover the costs of the National Housing Strategy through bilateral agreements with Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation. Ottawa is currently engaged in bilateral trade agreements with Korea, Singapore, India, the Central America Four (El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua), the Dominican Republic, the Andean Community, CARICOM, Morocco and the EU (CETA). On July 6, 2017, the Minister of Infrastructure and Municipalities addressed the provinces and territories to launch the next steps and begin negotiations to cooperate with them to quickly reach these important agreements. You can read the Minister`s letters here: the North American Free Trade Agreement between Canada, the United States and Mexico came into force on January 1, 1994 and created the world`s largest free trade region in terms of GDP. Until 2014, NAFTA`s GDP was estimated at more than $20 trillion, with a market of 474 million people.
  Based on this success, Canada continues to negotiate free trade agreements with more than 40 countries and has free trade agreements, most recently with South Korea, Canada`s first free trade agreement with an Asia-Pacific partner. Since 2018, Canada has also concluded two other important multilateral trade agreements: the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) with the European Union and the Comprehensive and Progressive Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) agreement with 10 other Pacific countries.  On September 21, 2017, CETA was provisionally implemented, immediately removing 98% of the EU`s customs positions on Canadian products.  Canada is currently the only G7 country to have free trade agreements with all other G7 countries. Free trade with the last G7 country, Japan, began with the entry into force of the CPTPP on 30 December 2018.
