Canada, following the UK and the EU, will abolish all duties on imports of goods from Ukraine, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced after meeting with President Volodymyr Zelensky in Kyiv.
By abolishing duties for one year, Canada will continue to support the Ukrainian economy by ensuring duty-free importation of Ukrainian goods into Canada," the Canadian Ministry of Finance said in a statement.
The proposed measure will come into force after the approval and registration of the relevant government decision. The Canada Border Services Agency will then issue a Customs Notice detailing how importers can take advantage of this solution.
Ottawa reported that from 2019 to 2021, Ukrainian exports to Canada averaged 170.8 million Canadian dollars per year, with duties in the amount of 2.6 million Canadian dollars.
