Retaliatory tariffs on US steel, aluminum and other products

: General

Canada is imposing countermeasures (surtaxes) against C$16.6 billion in imports of steel, aluminum, and other products from the U.S. 2018-06-29

On May 31, 2018, the United States announced tariffs on imports of certain steel and aluminum products from Canada at the rates of 25% and 10%, respectively. 
 
In response to these US tariffs, Canada is imposing countermeasures (surtaxes) against C$16.6 billion in imports of steel, aluminum, and other products from the U.S., representing the value of 2017 Canadian exports affected by the U.S. tariffs.
 
A notice concerning these measures, which includes a list of the goods that will be subject to retaliatory surtaxes, has been published by the Department of Finance.
 
These measures will only apply to goods that originate in the United States. Goods imported from the U.S. that originate in another country will not be subject to this special surtax.
 
These measures will go into effect on July 1, 2018 and will remain in place until the U.S. eliminates its trade-restrictive measures against Canada. The Canadian countermeasures will not apply to U.S. goods that are in transit to Canada on the day on which these countermeasures come into force.
