ANNOUNCED AS TEMPORARYNo
The Office of the Prime Minister announced on March 27, 2018, in conjunction with the U.S. imposition of additional import tariffs on steel and aluminum, that the Government of Canada will try to prevent these products from being transshipped from Canada to the United States or diverted into the Canadian market from the United States. The following regulatory changes will be subject to a 15-day consultation period.
The government will also (a) coordinate more closely with the United States and Mexico to strengthen border enforcement, (b) urgently undertake a review to ensure enforcement agencies have all necessary resources to combat unfair trade, (c) look to meet more often with the United States and Mexico on issues that harm all three countries, including transshipment, diversion, and global overcapacity, and (d) participate in new stakeholder committees that will meet regularly to monitor steel and aluminum trade.
