Canada hikes tariffs on cucumbers, other agri products

Following the United States decision to impose tariffs on imports of certain steel and aluminium products from Canada (at rates of 25 percent and 10 percent, respectively), the Canadian government announced countermeasures of up to $12.8 billion ($16.6 billion CAD) on imports of steel, aluminium, and other products from the United States.
The targeted countermeasure value roughly approximates the value of Canadian exports in 2017 that would be affected by U.S. measures.The agricultural products covered by Canada’s announcement are listed and will be subject to a 10 percent “surtax” as of July 1, 2018.
View the table with the full list of agricultural products covered by the Canadian announcement, as well as the 2017 value of imports from the United States.
