Canada wants to secure a free trade agreement that takes effect the day after Brexit, using its deal with the European Union as a template.

The assurance from the country’s ambassador to London is a boon for Liam Fox’s international trade department, which is seeking to replicate 39 EU trade agreements with more than 50 countries. All of those will require at least some renegotiation and trade lawyers had warned that some countries would try to extract extra concessions in view of Britain having less negotiating leverage than the EU.

Janice Charette, Canada’s high commissioner in London, said: “We will be interested in positioning Canada such that the day after Brexit the same preferential access is in place as the day before.”
