USMCA implementation bill headed for Royal Assent, as Parliament goes on 5-week hiatus


Editor’s note: Bill C-4 received Royal Assent Friday (see below). 

In the interest of expediency in the middle of the COVID-19 outbreak, Canada’s House of Commons tabled a single motion to: adopt four bills, an opposition motion, cancel all committee meetings, and adjourn. The motion passed.

Included in the list is Bill C-4, the bill to implement the United States-Canada-Mexico Agreement (USMCA). Canada is the last of the three countries to ratify the bill. The bill was considered passed, and headed to the  Senate for approval. It passed third reading and has been sent for Royal Assent from the Governor General.

The House is now adjourned until April 20, 2020.
