The Trump Administration has imposed tariffs on imports of Canadian steel and aluminum. Canada represents almost 17 per cent of U.S. steel imports, and provides the U.S. with about half of its annual aluminum needs. The ripple effects of these tariffs could cascade throughout the economy. In this 30-minute webinar, get The Conference Board of Canada’s first comprehensive analysis of the potential impact.

Webinar Highlights

During this webinar, Matthew Stewart outlines the impact based on several factors, including:

  • The implications for sectors affected by the U.S. tariffs on steel and aluminum.
  • The potential effects of retaliatory tariffs on the prices of U.S. goods and services that Canadians buy.
  • The uncertainty factor, should additional tariffs be imposed or if business investment intentions are further impacted.
