Ukraine: Poultry Protocol with Canada is Signed

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   UP2023-0002

Ukrainian poultry products were approved for export to the Canadian market as Ukrainian and Canadian regulators signed a bilateral veterinary certificate for poultry and processed poultry products in November 2022. Although the current trade regime allows for quota-free and duty-free trade under a Canadian temporary measure, Ukrainian exports are expected to remain restricted by Canada’s poultry supply management program once the measure expires in June 2023. There is a potential for Ukrainian poultry to displace Canadian poultry on the market, thus increasing Canadian exports to the United States.
