U.S. issues final duty rates on Canadian softwood lumber

On November 24, 2021, the U.S. Department of Commerce issued the final results of the second administrative reviews of its anti-dumping and countervailing duty orders regarding certain softwood lumber products from Canada.

Going forward, the new combined “all others” rate that will apply to exports from companies that are subject to the second administrative reviews is 17.9%. The current “all others” rate for most companies is 8.99%.

In a statement issued after the U.S. decision Canada’s Minister of International Trade, Mary Ng said “Canada is extremely disappointed that the United States has decided to increase the unfair duties it is imposing on Canadian softwood lumber from most producers to 17.9%. Canada calls on the United States to cease imposing these unwarranted duties on Canadian softwood lumber products. (…)”

“The Government of Canada will continue to vigorously defend our softwood lumber industry and the workers and communities it supports, including through litigation under CUSMA’s Chapter 10, as well as NAFTA’s Chapter 19 and at the WTO. At every step of the way, rulings have found Canada to be a fair trading partner.
