Canada bans Russia aluminum and steel imports

Canada bans Russia aluminum and steel imports - Route Newsletter: March 2023

As announced March 10, 2023, by The Honourable Chrystia Freeland, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, Canada has banned the import of Russian aluminum and steel products.

Through regulatory amendments under the Special Economic Measures (Russia) Regulations, the importation of all Russian aluminum products, such as unwrought aluminum, aluminum sheets, and finished products including containers and other household items made from aluminum, is now prohibited. Also banned are all primary Russian steel products, including iron and non-alloy steel, semi-finished, and finished products such as tubes and pipes.

This ban will further deny Russia the ability to generate the revenues it needs to pay for its war against Ukraine. Canada continues to work alongside its partners and allies to hold Russia accountable.

This import ban covers all noted Russian made goods, destined for Canada, regardless of the country of export.
