This is a research guide and bibliography concerning American and Canadian sources of and about the United States—Canada Free Trade Agreement. The Agreement is also called the Canada-U.S. Free Trade Agreement, Canada-American Free Trade Agreement, or the FTA. Formal negotiations concerning the Agreement began on March 18, 1985 at the “Shamrock Summit” (also called the “Quebec Summit”) with the signing of the Declaration on Trade in Goods and Services by U.S. President Ronald Reagan and Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney. The history of the FTA negotiations is set forth in the Winham book listed below, in the Department of State Bulletin, in newspapers, and in documents created during U.S. Congressional consideration of implementing legislation such as Senate Report No. 100–509.
