Canadian forest sector not pleased with final U.S. softwood lumber duties

OTTAWA (News release) -- Forest Products Association of Canada (FPAC) is disappointed with the U. S. Commerce Department's announcement of final duties on Canadian softwood lumber. These are unwarranted duties that the U.S. is levying against our industry and it will result in Americans paying more to build and renovate their homes. FPAC will continue to work alongside the federal government, provincial governments and our provincial forest products association partners to ensure that Canada's forest products sector remains competitive and innovative in the face of these protectionist measures.

"We appreciate that the federal government has pledged its continued support to defend our sector and our workers against these tariffs which are completely without merit," said Derek Nighbor, CEO of Forest Products Association of Canada.
