The Dairy Processors Association of Canada (DPAC) welcomes the Government of Canada’s announcement that it will establish working groups to address key issues affecting the dairy sector now, and in the future.

DPAC looks forward to working with The Hon. Lawrence MacAulay, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food, colleagues from his department, and Dairy Farmers of Canada as part of the two working groups which will look at mitigation strategies to address the impacts of USMCA and CPTPP, as well as support innovation and economic growth of the sector.

This announcement should be seen as a first step in addressing the numerous challenges facing the dairy sector.
