The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which came into force in 1994 and created a free trade area for Mexico, Canada and the United States, is the most important feature of bilateral trade relations between the United States and Mexico. On January 1, 2008, all tariffs and quotas for U.S. exports to Mexico and Canada were eliminated under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). For all other products of origin exported to Canada, indicate by analogy „MX” or „US” whether the products originated in that NAFTA country in accordance with NAFTA rules of origin, and any subsequent processing in the other NAFTA country does not increase the transaction value of goods by more than 7%; as „JNT” for joint production.

On that date, virtually all tariffs on trade in goods originating between Canada and the United States were eliminated. Some products are still subject to tariffs in Canada`s air sectors (. B, for example, eggs, dairy products and poultry products). In the United States, tariffs on certain products such as sugar, dairy products, peanuts and cotton are maintained.
