A guide by Marie Champagne and Maxime Laflamme

Suzanne, Marie-Pierre and Daniel are three farmer-processors who work tirelessly and who energize our Quebec countryside thanks to their hard work in the dairy industry. The new free trade agreement between Canada, Mexico and the United States, which had been at an impasse for 13 months, has just been signed and now dairy producers are disappointed and wondering about the situation.

The agreement provides for an opening of 3.59 % of the Canadian milk and dairy products market to Americans as well as the elimination of class 7 on diafiltered milk, which allows Canada to lower its prices on this product to promote producers here.
