Steel and aluminum tariffs opposed on both sides of the border

Approval of the USMCA/CUSFTA should only happen if Section 232 tariffs on imports of steel and aluminum products from Canada and Mexico are eliminated, says Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland. The Provinces are taking the same position as they are very concerned about the negative impacts of the tariffs on Canadian workers and industry.

Opposition is also growing in the U.S., where U.S. trade associations say the tariffs – and Canada’s retaliatory duties – are causing more harm than good.

Some have suggested progress would be possible if Canada agreed to drop its retaliatory tariffs first, but Freeland said this is unlikely.
