Simplification of Documents and Information Related to TRQ Administration for Supply-Managed Products

October 4, 2019 – Global Affairs Canada (GAC) recently issued a notice to industry to advise on the TRQ administration change for supply managed quota goods to streamline the notices into one document and one location for all the key dates, quantity and application timeline.

In the light of the increased number of Tariff Rate Quotas (TRQs), the Supply-Managed Trade Controls Division of Global Affairs Canada has undertaken an initiative to streamline and simplify public documents related to TRQ administration for supply-managed products. GAC would like to inform you that these documents are now available on our website in preparation for the application period starting October 1st.

The Notices to Importers have been reformulated in plain language. There is no change to existing ministerial policies. In order to eliminate information duplicated across many of the Notices to Importers, general information has been centralized in one document. Finally, one document that sets out key dates and access quantities for the various TRQs has been created to facilitate the updating and consultation of this information. These documents can be consulted at:
