The United States – Mexico – Canada trade agreement (USMCA) went into effect on July 1, 2020, opening a wide range of direct and indirect opportunities for mutually beneficial cooperation across North America for at least the first 16 years on the agreement.  It established rules to govern the massive commercial relationship between the three neighbors and established mechanisms and processes to solve the disputes that arise.  

USMCA and the successful management of the issues it covers are vital for the economic well-being of all three countries as well as for related North American cooperation. Over the past year, the Wilson Center held twenty public and private events on USMCA and related topics as well as publishing some twenty related articles to give special focus to the challenges and the potential of the agreement’s implementation.  This document is a complete list of the Wilson Center's and activities on USMCA and related North America cooperation between June 2020 and June 2021.
