As temperatures and tensions increase, the measures targeting Can$16.6 billion (US$12.6 billion) in U.S. steel, aluminum and consumer goods will take effect on Sunday, when Canadians celebrate a national holiday and just days before Americans celebrate Independence Day amid a heatwave expected in both countries.

"Our priority has always been to conclude a mutually beneficial agreement as quickly as possible and that, I think, remains our goal", said the official, speaking on condition of anonymity about a matter they weren't authorized to discuss publicly. "That's what we're focused on - breaking down barriers".

"This is who we are, we're there for each other in times of difficulty, in times of opportunity". The Canadian Steel Producers Association says the USA and Canada export roughly the same amount of steel to each other annually.

Trudeau is celebrating Canada Day on the road highlighting the stand he has taken against the US government's decision to impose tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum products.

Canada's retaliatory tariffs, effective today, largely target United States steel and aluminum products, along with foodstuffs such as coffee, ketchup and whisky, according to a list released by Canada's Finance department.

The tit-for-tat duties are a response to the punishing U.S. steel and aluminum tariffs imposed at the start of June.

With the tariff fight as the backdrop, Ottawa hopes to move forward with NAFTA. The two leaders also discussed the North American Free Trade (NAFTA) negotiations and agreed to continue working toward a mutually beneficial outcome.

President Donald Trump infuriated USA allies - from Canada to Mexico and the European Union - by imposing tariffs of 25 percent on imported steel and 10 percent on aluminum.

Freeland said that "significant progress" has been made on the auto portion, and the deal as a whole. He's insisted they've hurt American farmers. Trump told Fox News's Maria Bartiromo, adding that "I want to wait until after the election" to sign it. We're going to destroy an industry. Do you know what happened?

"I'm glad that Justin Trudeau is standing up to him, because I feel like that's his modus operandi, he just tries to bully to get his way and we need to stand up for ourselves", she said.

The Window and Door Manufacturers Association (WDMA) issued a statement denouncing the growing trade conflict between the USA and Canada.
