The Government of Canada is accepting comments regarding which American products should have additional tariffs imposed upon them in retaliation for U.S. steel and aluminum tariffs, which were enacted by the Trump Administration on June 1, 2018. The government hopes to have its tariffs in place beginning July 1 but is still discerning which products its tariffs will affect. Canada expects the duties on the chosen products to mirror the U.S. tariffs, at an additional 10 percent or 25 percent.
A list of items under consideration for retaliatory measures can be found here.
Interested parties may submit their comments to Canada’s Department of Finance via fax or email through June 15, 2018.
NAEGA members interested in submitting comments should contact Ryan.
