April 29, 2016 – Ottawa, Ontario – Department of Finance Canada
The Department of Finance today launched a consultation on potential changes to Canada’s trade remedy system.
This consultation was announced in Budget 2016 as part of the Government’s commitment to strengthen Canada’s response to unfair trade.
Canada’s trade remedy system provides recourse for domestic producers injured by unfairly traded goods entering the Canadian market. A modern and effective trade remedy system ensures Canadian producers can operate on a level playing field and have the appropriate tools to respond to changing global trade conditions.
The Government is interested in hearing from a wide range of stakeholders for this initiative. Further details on the consultation, including how to provide comments, can be found in the Canada Gazette notice below.
