Canada signs free trade agreement with Ukraine
The Canadian government has signed a free trade agreement with Ukraine.
The trade deal was signed on July 11 by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko.
In 2015, trade between the two countries totaled $278 million; the top Canadian exports to the eastern European country include fertilizers, iron and steel, and anthracite coal.
Following the signing, the Canadian and Ukrainian legislatures will begin the ratification and implementation process for the new trade agreement.
