Prime Minister Theresa May is due to travel to Canada to discuss plans for a post-Brexit trade deal.

She said the two countries held “shared values” ahead of meeting Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Mrs May is also expected to raise a trade dispute that could threaten aerospace jobs in Northern Ireland.

She has previously lobbied US president Donald Trump about the row involving Canadian firm Bombardier, which employs 4,500 people in Belfast, and Boeing.

Boeing has complained about alleged anti-competitive practices in the sale of Bombardier’s CSeries jet – and Bombardier could face significant financial penalties if the US trade authorities find against it.

Mrs May’s visit comes ahead of a deal between Canada and the EU, the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (Ceta), coming into force on 21 September.

The PM hopes to use Ceta as the model for a bilateral trade deal for when the UK is excluded from Ceta after Brexit.

Under the EU-Canada agreement, which took seven years to negotiate, Canada agreed to eliminate 98% of its import duties.

Mrs May and Mr Trudeau are expected to set up a new joint working group to prepare the groundwork for a separate deal.
