Minister Bains defends Canadian aluminum jobs

Canada's world-class aluminum producers are important contributors to our economy

MONTRÉAL, March 8, 2018 /CNW/ - The Government of Canada defends Canada's aluminum workers and aluminum industry.

That was the key message delivered today by the Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development, at a round table of aluminum stakeholders in Montréal.

Minister Bains said that Canada's aluminum producers are world-class and important contributors to our economy and manufacturing supply chains.

Canada is in discussion with other countries in the G20 to ensure the economic security of the industry and to protect Canadian producers.

The government understands that the Canadian and American industries are part of an integrated North American market. This two-way trade is essential to the health of the producers and manufacturing supply chains on both sides of the border. We will continue to engage with the U.S. to preserve this open trade.

Our countries should work together to meet these challenges and to increase opportunities for companies and workers on both sides of the border.


"Canada's aluminum industry sustains thousands of good, middle-class jobs in communities across our country. Our government will defend and champion this important sector and its workers."
? The Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development
