Canada's softwood lumber exports to the U.S. have declined 8 percent since the duties were determined, but because the wood itself is worth more, the industry hasn't suffered.
The antidumping and countervailing duties on imports of Canadian softwood lumber products have been collected pending the final demermination of the ITC, which was issued today.
“The U.S. Lumber Coalition fully supports the enforcement of America’s trade laws. The evidence presented to the ITC was clear - the massive subsidies that the Canadian government provides to its lumber industry and the dumping of lumber products into the U.S. market by Canadian companies cause real harm to U.S. producers and workers,” said U.S. Lumber Coalition Co-Chair and Co-President of Pleasant River Lumber Company, Jason Brochu.
