Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will travel to Brussels this weekend to sign a landmark trade deal with the European Union.
The official signing of the trade deal, known as the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement, or CETA, will take place on Sunday.
It was initially expected the signing would take place earlier in the week, however, plans were halted after the Belgian region of Wallonia stood in opposition.
The deal needed support from all 28 EU countries to pass.
Wallonia’s concerns about investor protection provisions were addressed on Thursday when an agreement was reached to give national and regional parliaments throughout Europe power on the issue.
It was announced Friday that Wallonia had withdrawn opposition, opening the doors again for the Canada-EU CETA deal agreement.
CETA will open markets between 500-million EU citizens and more than 35-million Canadians.
