“Canada is pleased with Brazil’s decision to end its WTO challenge of Canadian support measures for the Airbus A220 aircraft: Mary Ng, Minister of Small Business, Export Promotion

Channel 1 Los Angeles


“Canada’s innovative aerospace industry provides well-paying jobs for Canadians and contributes to our knowledge-based economy. Our government has vigorously defended Canada’s aerospace industry and its workers, including since Brazil’s initial complaint in 2017, confident that Canadian support measures fully respect international trade rules.

“Canada welcomes Brazil’s interest in seeking plurilateral disciplines on government support for commercial aircraft. A better understanding among aircraft-producing countries of the rules in this regard could minimize recourse to trade litigation on the issue and help level the playing field. Canada is open to exploring the possibility of clarifying rules for all players in the aerospace sector.”
