Canada to make steel supply chain more transparent

The Government of Canada is committed to transparency in the collection and publication of data related to steel imports. Today, the Honourable Mary Ng, Minister of Export Promotion, International Trade and Economic Development, announced that beginning November 5th, 2024, steel importers will be required to report “country of melt and pour” information to the Canada Border Services Agency when completing their customs declarations under Canada’s Steel Import Monitoring Program.

As part of a phased-in approach, steel importers now have the option to begin reporting data regarding the country where raw steel was first produced. This process will ensure Canada is working with the steel industry to support an effective and smooth transition to mandatory reporting in fall 2024.

Global Affairs Canada will analyze this data and publish reports on steel import trends.
