Bill C-282, an Act to amend the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Act (supply management), to prevent further trade deal concessions on supply-managed products, passed the second reading in the House of Commons on February 8, 2023 and was referred to the Standing Committee on International Trade. Tom Rosser, an assistant agriculture minister, told the Standing Committee that the bill fits with the federal government’s announced plans.

The bill has received approval in principle in the Commons and is under study by the Standing Committee on International Trade. If it approves it, the bill will then only need third reading in the Commons and approval by the Senate to become law.
