Canadian International Trade Tribunal Makes Finding—Decorative and Other Non-structural Plywood from China
The Canadian International Trade Tribunal found that the dumping and subsidizing of decorative and other non-structural plywood, whether or not surface coated or covered, and veneer core platforms for the production of decorative and other non-structural plywood, originating in or exported from the People’s Republic of China, have not caused injury and are not threatening to cause injury to the domestic industry. Anti-dumping and countervailing duties will therefore not be collected by the Canada Border Services Agency (“CBSA”). The complainants in this case were Columbia Forest Products of Hearst, Ontario, Husky Plywood of Sainte-Thérèse, Quebec, Rockshield Engineered Wood Products, ULC of Cochrane, Ontario, and the Canadian Hardwood Plywood and Veneer Association of Saint-Sauveur, Quebec.
The Tribunal will issue the reasons for its finding on March 8, 2021. For details on the specific products that were under inquiry or for more information on the finding, visit the Tribunal’s website.
The Tribunal is an independent quasi-judicial body that reports to Parliament through the Minister of Finance. It hears cases on dumped and subsidized imports, safeguard complaints, complaints about federal government procurement and appeals of customs and excise tax rulings. When requested by the federal government, the Tribunal also provides advice on other economic, trade and tariff matters.
