Ontario survey on impact on Steel/Aluminum Tarrifs – please complete

We are gathering anecdotal information regarding the impact on Ontario companies related to the steel/aluminum tariffs. If you have been affected by the tariffs, could you reply to this email with answers to the questions below.

Thank you for your timely response.

As a result of the U.S. government’s imposition of a 25% tariff on Canadian steel/10% Aluminum exported to the U.S.,

1.     Have you (Ontario company) experienced any negative impacts/hardship? For example,

a.     Declining profitability – (e.g. slowdown in sales/orders to the U.S.)

b.     Employment impacts – (e.g. layoffs, reduction in shifts or freeze on hiring)

c.      Delay in investment decisions – (e.g. delay in potential expansions, hiring of new staff or cancellation of projects)

2.     Have your U.S. customers experienced any negative impacts/hardship? For example,

a.     Declining profitability for U.S. customers – (e.g. lower margins as a result of higher Canadian steel input costs).

b.     Employment impacts – (e.g. layoffs, reduction in shifts or freeze on hiring)

c.      Delay in investment decisions – (e.g. delay in potential expansions, hiring of new staff or cancellation of projects)
