What consumer goods and food items could cost 10% more as of July 1
Cast-iron grills, refrigerator-freezers and pillows added to list, prepared mustard and beer kegs removed
The federal government has released its final list of U.S. imports that will be slapped with tariffs starting Sunday — with some notable changes from the list that was floated at the beginning of June, before industry had a chance to weigh in on the proposals.
Aside from the vast array of steel products that are being slapped with a tariff of 25 per cent and a long list of aluminum products that will cost Canadian importers 10 per cent more, the new tariffs will also apply to a long list of consumer items.
The consumer items fall under the country of origin classifications outlined in NAFTA.
The federal government put out a list of these consumer items on May 31 and gave industry and stakeholders time to make a case for why a given item should be added to the list or removed.
While much of it stays the same — tariffs on U.S. whisky, lawn mowers, ketchup and maple syrup remain in place — there have been some tweaks.
The government added some items, such as cast-iron grills, refrigerator-freezers and pillows, to the list and removed others: steel and iron beer kegs and prepared mustard.
