Nova Scotia’s Department of Intergovernmental Affairs is working to update and share information with stakeholders impacted by recent trade actions initiated by the United States.
On June 1, 2018, the U.S. imposed tariffs on certain products of steel and aluminum from Canada. The Government of Canada continues to work for the full and permanent removal of these tariffs. A series of countermeasures was implemented by Finance Canada on July 1. In addition to applying reciprocal tariffs on imports of steel, aluminum and some other products from the U.S., programs and initiatives are in place that may mitigate impacts for stakeholders.
