answer text <p>We are working to transition existing EU trade agreements, including CETA, into bilateral deals as the UK leaves the EU. We continue to engage Canada to seek to achieve this at the earliest opportunity, and both sides are committed to a strong trading relationship moving forwards.</p><p> </p><p>If the UK leaves the EU without a deal, the UK will implement a temporary tariff which aims to minimise costs to business and mitigate price impacts on consumers.
