Canadian customs and global trade alert: Canada announces new measures to address unfair trade practices

Published on: Apr 17, 2018

On March 27, 2018, the Prime Minister of Canada announced new measures designed to identify and deal with unfair trade practices. Notice of the proposed regulatory text was published in the Canada Gazette on March 31, 2018, and a 15-day consultation period was imposed. This announcement follows President Trump’s recent decision to increase tariffs on steel and aluminum goods imported into the United States. The measures are designed to protect North American industries from actual or threatened harm from unfair practices. The announcement is a signal to the trade community that Canada will not be used as a backdoor for the diversion of steel and aluminum goods into the United States.
