New information from its legal counsel and the Canadian government contradicts that initial annoucement and that Canada’s 10% retaliatory tariff on US boats remains in place

The NMMA has released a statement this afternoon following its annoucement last night indicating that Canada’s 10% retaliatory tariff on US boats had been lifted. The NMMA now states that new information from its legal counsel and the Canadian government contradicts that initial annoucement and that Canada’s 10% retaliatory tariff on US boats remains in place. According to the statement: ”The announcement we referenced in our notification last evening only pertained to a small portion of exports prior to June 1, 2018 – not products that were sent to Canada on or after that date.” 

“We deeply apologize for any and all confusion this created and are greatly disappointed that the initial news we shared was not correct,” read the joint statement from NMMA and NMMA Canada. 

“We are continuing to work with the Canadian and US governments to resolve the tariff issue and will not back down until we bring you a victory. We thank you, and the entire industry, for your ongoing support, and want to add a special thanks this morning to Boating Ontario, Boating BC, Boating Atlantic, the Mid Canada Dealers Association, and Boating Quebec.”
