Ottawa (VNA) – The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) announced on May 25 that it is launching an investigation into cold-rolled steel in coils or cut lengths originating in or exported from China, the Republic of Korea (RoK) and Vietnam.

The agency will coordinate with the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) to investigate whether or not the products are being sold at unfair and/or subsidized prices in Canada.

The investigation will examine cold-rolled steel commonly used in the production and manufacture of a range of goods including household appliances, drums, tubing, furniture and strapping. Cold-rolled steel used for automobile production is not the subject of the investigation.

On May 18, Canada also began an anti-dumping investigation into sucker rods from China.

Currently, there are 99 special import measures in force in Canada, covering a wide variety of industrial and consumer products, from steel products to refined sugar.

In 2017, the steel industry created jobs for more than 23,000 labourers in Canada and contributed 4.2 billion CAD (over 3.2 billion USD) to the national economy.-VNA
