Rapeseed, in terms of farm value, is the second most important crop grown in Canada. The existence of tariffs on rapeseed oil, in the major import markets of the EEC and Japan, have led many to believe that the elimination of these tariffs would result in substantial benefits for Canada. This article presents empirical evidence on the impacts of removing the EEC tariffs on rapeseed and soybean oil, both separately and jointly. In general, Canada gains from rapeseed oil tariff reductions and loses from soybean oil tariff cuts. Canada also loses if both tariffs are reduced in the EEC. © 1983.
