The Canadian Steel Producers Association (CSPA) is throwing its support behind the Canada Border Services Agency’s recent decision to apply retroactive duties on corrosion resistant steel sheet from Turkey and Vietnam. 

“The trade remedy system remains the steel industry’s only shield against the unfair trade that continuously threatens our industry’s competitiveness. The agency’s decision demonstrates that Canada takes unfair trade seriously and will use the tools at its disposal to combat these practices. We continue to remind the Canadian government that applying retroactivity to their determinations remains vital to ensuring fair trade in our country.” says Catherine Cobden, President & CEO of the Canadian Steel Producers Association. 

Cobden added that while her association is pleased with this outcome, it believes the government must construct a retroactive policy that ensures timely and consistent application of retroactive duties.

“Without a clear and strict policy, foreign exporters benefit from a dumping holiday and the domestic industry, and our workers remain at risk,”  she said. “The stakes remain high.”

The Canadian Steel Producers Association is the national voice of Canada’s primary steel and the pipe and tube industry.
