Tribunal Publishes Report on the Impact of Canadian Anti-Dumping and Countervailing Measures

Ottawa, Ontario, November 9, 2015

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (the Tribunal) published a report titled “The Impact of Canadian Anti-Dumping and Countervailing Measures on Domestic Shipments, Investments, Employment and Imports: 1989-2014.” The report evaluates the impact of Canadian anti-dumping and countervailing measures by estimating what Canadian shipments, investments, employment and imports would have been if the trends that existed prior to the imposition of the measures had continued.

The determinations of the Tribunal in anti-dumping and countervailing duty cases under the Special Import Measures Act have an important impact on shipments, investments and employment in the domestic manufacturing and agricultural sectors, and on imports of goods into Canada.

International trade agreements allow countries, including Canada, to impose anti-dumping and countervailing measures to protect their industries against the injurious dumping and subsidizing of goods by foreign competitors. Dumping occurs when goods are exported for less than the price of those goods in the home market, or at unprofitable prices. Subsidizing occurs when goods imported into a country benefit from foreign government financial assistance.

The report is available on the Tribunal’s Web site at www.citt-tcce.gc.ca/en/effects_paper_e.
