Brexit: UK and Canada agree deal to keep trading under EU terms

The UK and Canada have agreed a deal to continue trading under the same terms as the current EU agreement
after the Brexit transition period ends.


The government said it paved the way for negotiations to begin next year on a new comprehensive deal with
Canada.


The PM and Canadian PM Justin Trudeau made the "agreement in principle" in a video call, the Department for
International Trade said.


The agreement does not give any new benefits to businesses.

But it rolls over the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement reached by the EU and Canada after seven 
years of negotiations.

Boris Johnson said the extension was "a fantastic agreement for Britain", adding: "Our negotiators have been
working flat out to secure trade deals for the UK and from as early next year we have agreed to start work on 

a new, bespoke trade deal with Canada that will go even further in meeting the needs of our economy."

Welcoming the continuity deal, Mr Trudeau suggested a new comprehensive trade agreement with
the UK would 
take several years to negotiate.

Speaking during the video call, which also included International Trade Secretary Liz Truss and her counterpart
Mary Ng, Mr Trudeau said: "Now we get to continue to work on a bespoke agreement, a comprehensive 

agreement over the coming years that will really maximise our trade opportunities and boost things for
everyone."


Labour's shadow international trade secretary Emily Thornberry welcomed the "necessary" deal.
