Watch the highlights of the Metro Cities Chambers for NAFTA 2.0 event and interviews with heads of North American chambers of commerce that participated.

On January 22, leaders of 25 metropolitan chambers of commerce in Canada, the U.S. and Mexico gathered in Montréal to mobilize the North American business community to keep NAFTA in place.

The goal of the full-day meeting was to identify issues surrounding the renewal of the agreement, to understand the risks to companies should negotiations fail, and, in particular, to send a clear message to the three governments about the importance of updating NAFTA and maintaining open access to the entire North American market.

Leaders of the following chambers of commerce took part in the Montréal meeting: Albany, Boston, Brampton, Calgary, Chihuahua, Cleveland, Dallas, Detroit, Edmonton, Halifax, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Mérida, Mexico City, Minneapolis, Monterrey, Montréal, Querétaro, San Antonio, St. Louis, Tijuana, Toronto, Vancouver, Veracruz and Winnipeg.
