Although Canada is a fairly large producer and exporter of pork, around 243,000 tonnes of pork is imported each year (2017-2019 avg.). The vast majority of this comes from the United States, which is most likely in part due to circular trade between the two countries with product passing back and forth for processing sides either side of the border. There is also significant live trade in pigs between the two countries. Aside from the United States, Canada imports 23,000t on average (2017-19) from the EU, the vast majority of this is fresh/frozen pork.
