About this Webinar

The Canadian government’s recent implementation of the Provisional Safeguard Surtax and the U.S. Countermeasures Surtax, in addition to existing duties imposed under the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA), will require importers to know their products and be more vigilant than ever concerning these three programs. Regulatory expert Linda Cybulski will provide you with an overview of these programs and their potential impact on Canadian industries.

Learn about CBSA requirements and the regulatory tools available for importers to determine whether goods are subject to additional duties or surtaxes. See what you can do to keep your business compliant and avoid penalties.

Who Should Attend?

Importers of steel and aluminum products, among other general importers directly impacted by SIMA and the U.S. Surtax, should attend this session.
