U.S. Rescinds Tariffs on Aluminum From Canada

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff

The Trump Administration has rescinded the 10% tariffs on aluminum from Canada that were imposed on August 16, 2020. The action was taken with the expectation that a reported surge in unalloyed aluminum imports earlier this year is expected to decline in the coming months. In exchange, Canada will not pursue counter-tariffs on imports of U.S. goods.

Imposition of the U.S. tariffs had drawn widespread criticism from the U.S. business community, including SEMA and the Driving American Jobs Coalition, which represents the wide breadth of the auto industry.
