The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Canada stated that the government, starting from July 1, 2018, introduced “moderate and proportionate measures” in the amount of 16 billion 600 million Canadian dollars for steel, aluminum and other products from the US in response to US duties on Canadian steel and aluminum. In addition to duties on various steel and aluminum products, Canada has also introduced import duties against food products produced in the US, in particular whiskey, yogurt, coffee, chocolate and others. A statement by the Canadian authorities also says that “to protect the interests of Canadian workers and companies in the steel and aluminum segment, as well as industry”, subsidies amounting to 2 billion Canadian dollars were allocated.
