Canada Will Not Face Countervailing Duties in On-Going Trade Case on Fabricated Structural Steel

Dear Members & Associates,

The Canadian steel industry has been under investigation by the U.S. Department of Commerce for the past few months as part of an active anti-dumping (AD) and subsidy (CVD) trade case on imports of fabricated structural steel from Canada, Mexico and China.

The U.S. Department of Commerce has officially announced their final CVD assessments, which determines if all countries named will receive countervailing duties on imported fabricated structural steel.

Canada was assessed at zero, Mexico will get nearly 14 per cent, while China will see close to 34 per cent in duties.

This is fantastic news for Canada, the Canadian steel industries and Canadian workers! We are proud to demonstrate that our steel industry, alongside the Canadian governments, have been and are presently operating within the rules of the World Trade Organization (WTO).

We will continue to provide updates on this on-going trade case as we learn of new developments. If you have any further questions or concerns, please contact Ed Whalen, President and CEO of the CISC, at
