Sending the notification to Congress effectively sets a new clock for the Nafta negotiations.
Trump, however, kept up the pressure on social media, saying "there is no political necessity to keep Canada in the new NAFTA deal".
Trump has repeatedly cited NAFTA's auto sector regulations and the Canadian government's supply management system for dairy as two elements of trade between the two countries which negatively affect the U.S.
Canada's foreign affairs minister, Chrystia Freeland, was engaged in NAFTA negotiations for the better part of last week after news broke that the USA and Mexico had tentatively agreed to a new trade pact to replace the current agreement.

Trump has railed against the publication of his comments in tweets and public statements, though he did not appear to dispute the substance of his remarks.
In a press conference Friday afternoon, Freeland said Canada and the USA were working hard to reach a compromise and that the two countries "now understand each other's position very well".
"Remember, NAFTA was one of the WORST Trade Deals ever made. We were far better off before NAFTA - should never have been signed", he continued.
The decades-old trilateral trade agreement, which was first signed in 1994, has been a frequent target of Trump, who has criticized large trade deficits the USA has with Mexico and Canada, as well as the relocation of American jobs and companies. Canada is the second-biggest trading partner of the US, and Mexico is the third.
