The Canadian Institute of Steel Construction welcomed the successful lifting of US Section 232 steel tariffs and all Canadian countermeasures. CISC said “This effort negotiated by the Government of Canada will allow the Canadian steel industry, as well as those employed by it, to succeed and freely grow. With the removal of the US steel tariffs, Canada’s downstream steel construction sectors and steel fabricators are once again able to operate and bid on construction projects without contractual risk and uncertainty. Our Canadian steel industry can remain globally competitive, providing quality steel products and structures on both sides of the border.”

Mr Ed Whalen, President & CEO of the CISC said that “We’re pleased to see such a positive resolution for the removal of the US steel tariffs. Canadian steel companies and their employees deserve a fair chance to succeed and this negotiation has given them an opportunity to do so once again. We congratulate our federal government for their unwavering efforts in protecting the interests of Canadians in this matter and successfully implementing fair trade with the US. We urge the Canadian government to maintain the same active approach in protecting the Canadian market from dumped and/or subsidized fabricated structural steel. It is imperative that we continue to uphold the Canadian International Trade Tribunal’s ruling on anti-dumping duties in order to give more construction projects to Canadian companies, create steel industry jobs, keep the Canadian economy growing and strengthen the Canadian middle class.”
