Surtax imposed on certain products originating in the United States

(Originally posted on July 1, 2018)

Starting July 1, 2018, certain goods originating from the U.S. are subject to a surtax that will apply to commercial shipments as well as goods being imported by travellers above their personal exemptions.

Certain steel products are subject to a 25 per cent surtax and certain aluminum products and certain other products are subject to a 10 per cent surtax.

The surtax is part of countermeasures from the Government of Canada in response to unjustified tariffs imposed by the U.S. on Canadian steel and aluminum products.

The list of goods is available on the Department of Finance website.

Further information is available in Customs Notice 18-08 and in Memorandum D16-1-1.
