Still in force

Import tariff

On December 16, 2016 the Government of Canada published a notice
In a notice eliminating most-favored-nation (MFN) duties on certain agri-food processing inputs. This Order came into force on January 16, 2017. The process began with the publication on April 23, 2016 in the Canada Gazette a notice that the Government of Canada was considering this step.
 
The tariff items are listed below, and include such diverse goods as fruits, vegetables, cereals, spices, flours, fats, vinegar, pasta, and prepared foods. The current MFN rates on these products had generally been in the 3-12.5% range, but some were subject to specific rather than ad valorem rates.
 
The Government had indicated in its Budget 2016 the intention to launch public consultations on eliminating tariffs on certain imported food manufacturing ingredients, other than supply-managed products, to support investment and job creation in this important sector. The Government has reviewed Canada's tariff regime to identify opportunities to help improve the competitiveness of Canadian agri-food processors in domestic and foreign markets by reducing non-recoverable production costs.
 
The listed HS codes are 0702.00.11, 0702.00.19, 0703.10.21, 0704.90.10, 0706.90.10, 0707.00.10, 0708.10.10, 0708.20.10, 0709.20.10, 0709.51.10, 0709.59.10, 0710.10.00, 0710.21.00, 0710.22.00, 0710.29.90, 0710.40.00, 0710.80.10, 0710.80.20, 0710.80.30, 0710.80.40, 0710.80.90, 0710.90.00, 0711.40.90, 0711.51.00, 0711.59.00, 0711.90.90, 0712.20.00, 0712.31.00, 0712.90.20, 0712.90.90, 0713.33.99, 0713.34.00, 0713.35.00, 0713.39.90, 0713.50.90, 0714.30.10, 0714.40.10, 0714.50.10, 0714.90.10, 0808.30.10, 0809.10.10, 0809.29.10, 0809.30.10, 0809.40.10, 0810.10.10, 0811.10.10, 0812.10.90, 0812.90.20, 0812.90.90, 0813.30.00, 0904.12.00, 0904.22.90, 0906.20.00, 0907.20.00, 0908.12.00, 0908.22.00, 0908.32.00, 0909.22.00, 0909.32.00, 0909.62.00, 0910.12.00, 0910.91.92, 0910.99.90, 1001.19.10, 1001.99.10, 1003.10.11, 1003.90.11, 1003.90.91, 1101.00.10, 1102.20.00, 1102.90.11, 1102.90.90, 1103.11.10, 1103.19.11, 1103.20.11, 1103.20.21, 1103.20.90, 1104.19.11, 1104.19.21, 1104.19.90, 1104.22.00, 1104.23.00, 1104.29.11, 1104.29.21, 1104.29.90, 1104.30.11, 1104.30.90, 1105.10.00, 1105.20.00, 1106.10.90, 1107.10.11, 1107.10.91, 1107.20.11, 1108.11.10, 1108.13.00, 1108.19.11, 1108.19.90, 1108.20.00, 1109.00.10, 1208.10.10, 1208.90.10, 1212.99.20, 1502.10.00, 1502.90.00, 1503.00.00, 1504.20.90, 1504.30.00, 1506.00.00, 1507.10.00, 1507.90.90, 1508.10.00, 1508.90.00, 1511.10.00, 1511.90.90, 1512.11.00, 1512.19.10, 1512.19.20, 1512.21.00, 1512.29.00, 1513.11.00, 1513.19.90, 1513.21.00, 1513.29.90, 1514.11.00, 1514.19.00, 1514.91.00, 1514.99.00, 1515.11.00, 1515.19.00, 1515.21.00, 1515.29.00, 1515.50.10, 1515.50.90, 1515.90.91, 1515.90.99, 1516.10.10, 1516.10.90, 1516.20.90, 1518.00.10, 1518.00.90, 1603.00.11, 1603.00.19, 1701.12.90, 1701.13.90, 1805.00.00, 1806.10.10, 1806.10.90, 1806.20.90, 1901.20.13, 1901.20.23, 1901.20.29, 1901.90.11, 1901.90.20, 1901.90.39, 1901.90.40, 1901.90.59, 1902.40.20, 1905.90.34, 1905.90.72, 2102.20.01, 2102.30.00, 2106.10.00, 2106.90.29, 2106.90.91, 2106.90.92, 2106.90.96, 2106.90.98, 2106.90.99, 2207.10.90, 2207.20.19, 2207.20.90, 2208.90.21, 2209.00.00, 3301.19.90, 3503.00.90, and 3504.00.90.
