The United States Surtax Remission Order 18-1272, published in October 2018, provided a remission of surtax on the following items:

Finance Canada recently announced that the remission had been amended and changes were made to some of the items in Schedule 3.

Since the remission period for goods in Schedule 2 is scheduled to end on April 30, 2019.  Finance Canada has advised that: No blanket extension of the period of eligibility for remission is contemplated for goods listed in Schedule 2.  However, the Government will assess on a product-specific basis whether the period of remission should be extended upon request by downstream manufacturers who continue to experience supply issues.
