Canadian Government intends to remove all tariffs on goods from Ukraine

The Government of Canada announced its intention to remove remaining customs tariffs o goods from Ukraine for a period of one year:

“While most goods from Ukraine enter Canada duty-free as a result of the Canada-Ukraine Free Trade Agreement (CUFTA), tariffs still apply on certain goods where tariffs are being phased out under the Agreement, or where they are excluded from it.

From 2019 to 2021, Ukrainian exports to Canada averaged $170.8 million annually, and Canada collected about $2.6 million in duties from these goods.

By removing tariffs for a one year period, Canada would continue to support Ukraine’s economy by ensuring that Ukrainian goods are able to enter Canada duty-free.

The proposed measure would come into force once the Order in Council is approved and registered. The Canada Border Services Agency would then issue a Customs Notice detailing how importers can claim relief under the remission order.”
