CVMA Statement Regarding U.S. Section 232 Aluminum Tariff Action

August 6, 2020 STATEMENT

Statement by Brian Kingston, President & CEO of the Canadian Vehicle Manufacturers’ Association:

“The U.S. tariffs announced today on Canadian aluminum undermine the benefits of CUSMA, add unnecessary costs to industry on both sides of the border and risk the fragile economic recovery underway from the COVID-19 pandemic.”

“The CVMA urges the Canadian government to engage in proactive constructive dialogue with the U.S. to rescind U.S. tariffs on aluminum.”
