Bill C-282, an Act to amend the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Act (supply management) passed the second reading in the House of Commons on February 8, 2023 and has been referred to the Standing Committee on International Trade.

The Bill, presented by MP Luc Thériault of the Bloc Québécois, would legislate the protection of supply managed sectors in Canada by ensuring the government does not make market access concessions in future trade deals for supply managed products. In recent years, significant concessions have been made in trade agreements including CETA, CPTPP and CUSMA.
