About Pass USMCA

The Pass USMCA Coalition is a group of trade associations, businesses, and advocacy groups working together to ensure swift passage of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). The modernized trade pact will create American jobs, cultivate innovation, and spur economic growth.

Defend and Create American Jobs

Trade with Canada and Mexico already supports 14 million U.S. jobs. By modernizing our North American trading partnerships, USMCA will increase exports and boost the U.S. economy.

Cultivate Innovation

USMCA’s rigorous IP protections reward the extraordinary effort needed to bring smart technologies, sophisticated medicines, and other innovative products to life.

Revitalize Businesses

By lowering financial barriers to trade and opening markets, USMCA will improve U.S. competitiveness and boost economic opportunity for every American.

Our Mission

Advocating for the passage of the USMCA on behalf of American workers, businesses, employers, and exporters.
