Canada Investigates Dumping and Subsidizing of Certain Decorative and Non-Structural Plywood from China

On June 11, 2020 a plywood industry group and several Canadian plywood producers asked the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) to investigate Chinese plywood products and potentially assess countervailing and anti-dumping duties depending on the findings. The request is similar to actions taken in the United States and some of the parties making the request are the same or related.

Subsequent to this, a questionnaire was sent to importers, domestic producers, distributors, end users and the Chinese manufacturers. The data will be analyzed and on September 9, 2020 a preliminary rate will likely be set. It is not known what the rate will be, but it could be significant.

At Upper Canada, we are assessing our options for purchasing products that meet our customer needs. We will have material available for you.

There will be supply available from Vietnam, Indonesia and Malaysia however costs are approximately 20-40% higher. We also have domestic and European options available at higher costs.

A final rate determination will be made in December 2020.
