Softwood Lumber Agreement

On October 12, 2006, Canada and the United States implemented the 2006 Softwood Lumber Agreement. This agreement was extended in 2012. This agreement ends the costly litigation, secures the return to Canadian companies of the bulk of the duties paid to date, and provides some certainty for softwood lumber trade in the future.
