    The Canadian metals sector plays in a global field

    Thanks to recent consolidation, the Canadian metals industry has emerged as a truly international sector – with global owners and global customers. In fact, nearly all of Canadian steel is now owned by foreign markets.

    While this consolidation has brought numerous benefits to the Canadian metals sector, it has also made it vulnerable to the ongoing downturn in the economy. Fluctuating commodity prices and a lack of credit have hamstrung Canadian steel producers, affecting profitability and future growth.
