Aluminum Tarrifs — Impacting Your Business or Supply Chain?

Recently tariffs on a variety of aluminum products have been imposed by both the United States (on exported Canadian products/materials) and by Canada (on imported American products/materials).

The Burnaby Board of Trade is concerned with the potential negative impact of these tariffs on Canadian manufacturers who export to the US, but also local businesses which may use American aluminum items/materials in their supply chain that will soon be more expensive, particularly if there are few alternatives.

The list of items being impacted by the Canadian retaliatory tariffs are listed here.

If this trade dispute is impacting your business or supply chain, please let us know by contacting our Director of Policy Cory Redekop here.
