Canada's cultural exemption was absent from the Trump administration's list of negotiating objectives released before the start of the talks.
NAFTA came into effect in 1994, a successor to the Canada-United States Free Trade Agreement.
Canada rejoined the talks with the aim of reaching a three-way pact, but Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland abruptly ended the last round of talks on Friday with no deal, after derogatory remarks by Trump about Canada were leaked.
She said she hoped for "constructive conversations" Wednesday. Freeland insisted that the latest round of talks is being conducted in in "good faith".
Canada insisted there was still room to salvage the North American Free Trade Agreement after talks on Wednesday with the United States and said both sides would meet again later in the day after separate discussions on this morning's proposals.
On the eve of the resumption of talks to revamp the North American Free Trade Agreement, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau faces a dilemma.
"I think there are strong constituencies for the cultural exemption, particularly in Quebec... and I think it's something that they can bring home as a likely win", Ujczo said.
Whether Trump could make good on that threat remains an open question. Chapter 11 lets investors sue governments and Chapter 20 deals with country-to-country disputes.
Strawberry, pepper and tomato farmers, who've sparred with their Mexican counterparts over winter imports for years, argued that the deal does little or nothing to stop Mexican farmers from flooding the USA market with below-cost produce.
Trump notified Congress that he meant to sign the agreement by the end of November and officials said the text would be published by around October 1. We haven't seen whole chapters of the thing. Canada wants to ensure its publishing and broadcasting industries are not overrun by bigger U.S. rivals, and that dairy imports don't pull down prices for its own farmers.
The Miami Herald wanted to find out, and asked the governor for his opinion on the new trade agreement Saturday during a Scott visit to Doral, where a slew of Puerto Rican officials, including former Gov. Luis Fortuño, were gathered to endorse his candidacy for the U.S. Senate against Nelson.
A week ago, the US and Mexico reached an agreement on revisions to the current North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which Trump and the unions alike have criticized as a "disaster" (in Trump's words) or "devastating" (in Trumka's) for USA workers. Canada is the major export destination for 36 U.S. states, and many of Trump's political supporters have asked that he "do no harm" to the deal, to begin with. "We need a dispute resolution mechanism like Chapter 19 and we will hold firm on that".
Canada exports many commodities and runs a current account deficit, so its economy could be hurt if the global flow of trade or capital slows.
The two sides, which failed to settle their differences last week, are also arguing over US demands for more access to Canada's closed dairy market.
The White House on Friday gave Congress a required 90-day notification that it would be signing a revised version of NAFTA with Mexico and would include Canada only "if it is willing".
Urged on by the Business Council of Canada, the Trudeau government is now faced with conceding to American NAFTA demands: giving concessions on agriculture, intellectual property, cultural industries, and the dispute mechanism already signalled from the deal with Mexico - and getting nothing in return, other than the promise of a deal.
American networks anxious that the CRTC's decision reduced the value of Canadian programming because the amount they pay for Super Bowl rights is determined by how much advertising they can sell in Canada, Lighthizer's report said.
