NMMA Canada Makes Official Submission to Government of Canada Regarding Tariff Announcement on US Boats

NMMA Canada has made its official submission to the Government of Canada and the Prime Minister outlining our specific concerns regarding the retaliatory tariffs. A trade war between Canada and the US is bad for the recreational industry across Canada and it is extremely disappointing that the Government of Canada has had to make these drastic decisions. To view our letter click here.

We urge the recreational boating industry to contact their elected officials on this important matter. The more voices are heard, the stronger the voices are.

You can write the Prime Minister directly at the following address:

The Right Hon. Justin Trudeau, P.C., M.P.
Prime Minister of Canada
80 Wellington Street
Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0A3

You can also write your local Member of Parliament (If you do not know the MP in your riding please visit http://www.ourcommons.ca/Parliamentarians/en/members)

Here is an example of a letter you could use when writing government.

If you wish to discuss the topic or have questions, please do not hesitate to contact Sara Anghel, President, NMMA Canada at sanghel@nmma.org
