Canada rescinds tariff on US made boats

o-CANADA-UNITED-STATES-FLAGSCanada has lifted their tariff on American made powerboats!  

The Order Amending the United States Surtax Order (Other Goods) was approved and registered earlier this week (registration #SOR/2019-111).  This Order amends the United States Surtax Order (Other Goods) to remove boats (tariff items 8903.10.00, 8903.91.00, 8903.92.00 and 8903.99.90) from the list of goods subject to Canada’s countermeasures against certain imports from the U.S., effective April 30, 2019.  As such, all boats imported on or after April 30, 2019, are no longer subject to surtaxes on a forward basis.

We have always valued our friendships with our Canadian neighbors.
