Softwood Lumber Trade with the U.S.

The U.S. is B.C.'s largest market for softwood lumber products; and because of the importance of forestry to B.C.'s economy, a stable trading relationship is essential.  The 2006 Softwood Lumber Agreement expired on October 12, 2015 and on November 25, 2016, the U.S. lumber industry filed a petition to try and limit Canadian lumber shipments.
