Response to tariffs on Canadian aluminum products
On August 6, 2020, the United States (U.S.) announced the imposition of tariffs of 10 per cent on imports of certain aluminum products from Canada, which will take effect on August 16, 2020.
In response to these measures and in accordance with the May 2019 Joint Statement by Canada and the United States on Section 232 Duties on Steel and Aluminum, Canada intends to impose surtaxes against imports of aluminum and aluminum-containing products from the U.S., representing a proportionate amount of Canadian aluminum products affected by the U.S. tariffs.
