On May 30, U.S. Trade Representative Robert E. Lighthizer presented Congress with a draft declaration on the administrative steps needed to implement the U.S.-Mexico Agreement (USMCA and the new NAFTA), in accordance with the 2015 Presidential Trade Promotion (TPA) Administrative Action Statement. The project will allow congress to be presented to Congress, after 30 days, on June 29, a law to implement the USMCA. In a letter  to Nancy Pelosi, House of Representatives spokeswoman, and Kevin McCarthy, the minority leader of the House of Representatives, the Republican, told Lighthizer that the USMCA was the gold standard in U.S. trade policy, modernizing the competitive trade in digital, intellectual property and services in the United States, and creating a level playing field for U.S. businesses, workers and farmers, an agreement that represents a fundamental shift in trade relations between Mexico and Mexico. The parties agreed to establish important procedural safeguards for the recognition of new geographic indications (G.A.), including strong protection standards against the issuance of geographical indications that would prevent the use of common names by the United States, as well as the establishment of a mechanism for consultation between the parties on future geographical indications, in accordance with international agreements.

On March 13, 2020, the House of Commons passed The USMCA Implementation Act C-4 before exposing itself for 6 weeks due to the COVID 19 pandemic. Due to „exceptional circumstances,“ the third and final reading of the act was passed in the absence of a roll call vote, as part of an omnibus adjournment motion that was unanimously adopted by all members present.  Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was not present because he was at home in self-isolation after his wife, Sophie Grégoire Trudeau, tested positive for a covid-19 infection. On the same day, the Senate passed the first, second and third readings of the recorded voiceless legislation, and Governor General Julie Payette signed it shortly thereafter and concluded that Canada would ratify the legislation.
