Canada will challenge latest revised U.S. duties on softwood lumber

Following the the United States’ recently announced fourth administrative reviews on punitive duties imposed on softwood lumber from Canada, the Canadian Minister of International Trade, Mary Ng, announced that the country filed notices of intent to commence judicial review regarding the latest U.S. decision.

Current U.S. softwood lumber duties have subjected most Canadian softwood lumber exports to the new combined duty rate of 7.99%

In a statement Minister Ng said: “I have raised at every opportunity the unjustified U.S. duties on Canadian softwood lumber with my U.S counterpart, Katherine Tai, United States Trade Representative, and the need for both countries to find a mutually acceptable resolution to this dispute.”

“Canada remains ready and willing to discuss a negotiated outcome to the dispute that provides the stability and predictability the sector needs to ensure its continued growth and success.”
