Canadian Subsidies and Dumping

Canada’s lumber subsidies are threatening America’s Main Street economy. This is an issue of jobs, fairness in trade and economic stability for thousands of communities and hundreds of thousands of hardworking families across the U.S.

Canadian lumber mills receive substantial government subsidies, among them below-market harvesting fees from publicly owned land.  Canadian softwood lumber producers unfairly outcompete American producers and dump their artificially cheap softwood lumber in the U.S. market, putting U.S. lumber mills – which, unlike Canadian Mills, operate under a free market – at a fundamental competitive disadvantage. Because of unfair trade, U.S. mills lose sales, causing difficulty in maintaining production and employment levels. This harms communities all across the country and damages the overall U.S. economy.
