Implementation of the Canada–Ukraine Free Trade Agreement (CUFTA) Customs Notice 17-23


The Canada–Ukraine Free Trade Agreement (CUFTA) will be implemented on August 1, 2017. With the exception of a few agricultural goods, the CUFTA will essentially eliminate the customs duties on all imports from Ukraine, either immediately upon implementation of the agreement, or through a tariff phase-out for passenger automobiles.

Proof of Origin

The required proof of origin is a statement and is referred to in the CUFTA as the Origin Declaration. This statement may be provided on an invoice or any other commercial document that describes the originating product in sufficient detail to enable its identification.

In order to claim the Ukraine Tariff, importers must have in their possession the statement completed by the exporter in Ukraine.

Shipping Requirements

Goods may be shipped from Ukraine, with or without transshipment, to Canada.

Information regarding the CUFTA and the text of the agreement can be found on the Global Affairs Canada website.
