March 13, 2018 – Ottawa, Ontario – Global Affairs Canada

The Honourable Chrystia Freeland, Minister of Foreign Affairs, and the Honourable Jim Carr, Minister of Natural Resources, today issued the following statement regarding the U.S. Department of Commerce’s preliminary determination in its anti-dumping investigation on imports of Canadian uncoated groundwood paper.

“We are disappointed with today’s preliminary anti-dumping determination, which follows preliminary countervailing-duty rates previously announced by the U.S. Department of Commerce on January 9.

“Any duties will have a direct and negative impact on ‎U.S. newspapers, especially those in small cities and towns, ‎and result in job losses in the American printing sector‎.

“Our government is committed to helping our forest industry enhance existing trade relationships and diversify trade with new international markets.

“Canada’s forest industry sustains good, middle-class jobs and provides economic opportunities for rural and Indigenous communities across our country. We will continue to work with our forest industry, provinces and territories, and communities across Canada to defend this vital sector against unfair and unwarranted U.S. trade measures and practices.”
