NO NAFTA 2.0

WHO ARE WE?


We are the pan-Canadian coalition of civil society groups organizing around the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) renegotiations. We aim to voice the concerns of civil society, social movements and the people across Quebec and English-speaking Canada. We call for a new trade and investment relationship that benefits people and the planet.

Who are we?

We are the pan-Canadian coalition of civil society groups organizing around the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) renegotiations. We aim to voice the concerns of civil society, social movements and the people across Quebec and English-speaking Canada. We call for a new trade and investment relationship that benefits people and the planet.

Our coalition was born out of the tri-national civil society meeting in Mexico City in May 2017. At the meeting, we developed a political declaration [http://tradejustice.ca/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/Tri-national-Declaration-English-French-Spanish.pdf] — in partnership with our US and Mexican allies — that outlines our shared values and priorities for the NAFTA renegotiations. The declaration also represents a broader call for the construction of a new model of integration, cooperation and exchange among the North American nations. The declaration has become a key foundation in our work.

This website provides a common platform for our coalition members and allies to access information and resources on NAFTA, share alternatives to the current neoliberal, pro-corporate trade model, and post information about upcoming actions. This website is a place to get informed, stay up to date, and take action!

We oppose the pro-corporate trade model of NAFTA and other trade agreements (e.g. CETA and the TPP). We call for a new model of integration that is structured on the principles of equality, self-determination of peoples, protection of women’s, workers’, peasants’, and Indigenous rights, and social and ecological justice. Cooperation and exchange among nations must protect the primacy of human and environmental rights.  Finally, we demand transparency and democratic participation in any negotiations.

Join us in the fight to reject a pro-corporate NAFTA! Take action to demand a North American trade agreement that benefits people and the planet!

The pan-Canadian coalition is made up of labour, environmental, farmer, Indigenous, women’s, digital rights, social justice, and other civil society groups and activists. The coalition’s coordinating team is made up of representatives from Common Frontiers, the Council of Canadians, Réseau québécois sur l’integration continentale (RQIC) and the Trade Justice Network.
