The forestry sector is a vital part of Canada’s economy, supporting tens of thousands of good jobs for workers, growing the middle class, and generating sustainable prosperity for communities across the country.

Today, the Honourable Mary Ng, Minister of Small Business, Export Promotion and International Trade, as part of her ongoing engagement with the sector, met with Canadian forestry producers to discuss trade issues related to softwood lumber. This meeting with leaders in the industry follows similar meetings held last month with representatives from the forestry sector.

Minister Ng reiterated the government’s commitment to defending Canada’s forest industry, workers, and the communities it supports from the unwarranted and damaging U.S. duties on softwood lumber.

During the meeting, the Minister welcomed discussions with industry participants on their expectations regarding market conditions, including product demand and pricing, and related impacts for both producers and consumers. She reiterated Canada’s commitment to maintaining an open dialogue and seeking solutions that best support its industry, workers, and communities.
