Le Canada est l’un des plus proches partenaires de l’UE. Notre relation repose sur le respect des principes démocratiques, des droits de l’homme et des libertés fondamentales, ainsi que sur l’attachement à un ordre international fondé sur des règles. En 2016, l’UE et le Canada ont signé l’Accord de partenariat stratégique et l’Accord économique et commercial global, ce qui a donné une nouvelle dimension à cette relation. L’UE et le Canada sont également des partenaires proches dans le cadre du G7 et du G20.
