Bloomberg reports:

Canada requested the talks on Friday, according to people familiar with the matter, who asked not to be identified without permission to speak publicly.

A spokesperson for Canadian Trade Minister Mary Ng didn't directly respond when asked if Canada requested consultations.

"Canada will always work with the U.S. and Mexico to strengthen our trade relationship and grow a clean, green agriculture sector," Shanti Cosentino, Ng's press secretary, said in a statement. It added that the USMCA "has the ability to hold technical consultations to better understand how our policies are to be implemented under this agreement."

The move came a day after the Biden administration asked for consultations on biotech farm products including corn under the U.S.-Mexico-Canada agreement's chapter on food-safety measures. Those are a prerequisite for formal dispute-resolution talks, like those that the countries have already had on automobiles and energy. Dispute talks could be requested if the technical discussions don't take place or don't lead to a resolution.
