The Canadian Steel Producers Association (CSPA) is happy with changes to Canada’s trade remedy system announced in the federal budget.

“The CSPA is pleased to see the inclusion of changes to Canada’s trade remedy system in the 2022 federal budget,” said CSPA president and CEO Catherine Cobden, following the release of the 2022 Federal Budget. “While Canada has an effective trade remedy system, the changes announced today further strengthen these laws and demonstrate the country’s commitment to rules-based trade.”

The strengthening of Canada’s trade remedy regime could not come at a more urgent time, as process manufacturers face unprecedented levels of disruption in steel trade globally, added Cobden.

“The evolving nature of trade practices demands vigilance, and we are pleased to see the Government of Canada’s willingness to take these steps,” she said. “CSPA members remain committed to continuing to work with the government on the implementation of these new measures and to ensuring the effectiveness of Canada’s trade remedy system in support of the industry, our workers and the communities we serve.”
