1.0 Background

1.1 On October 12, 2006, the Canada-United States Softwood Lumber Agreement (SLA) entered into force. Under the Agreement, shipments of softwood lumber from Canada to the United States are subject to certain Canadian border measures. In particular, under SLA "Option A", an export charge is payable on the export price of softwood lumber; and, under SLA "Option B", an export charge on the export price is payable at a lower rate, with an export allocation.

1.2 Export allocations may be issued to eligible applicants. Export allocation eligibility criteria have been established after consultation with the respective provinces.

2.0 Purpose

2.1 The purpose of this notice is to provide a listing of all companies that have been granted export allocations for 2008 under the Agreement. This listing is based on the province in which the company has received an export allocation. See Appendixes 1, 2 and 3, for a list of Quebec, Ontario and Manitoba allocation holders, respectively. Please note that this list may be subject to change.

3.0 Saskatchewan Information

3.1 Export allocations for softwood lumber first manufactured in Saskatchewan are not listed as the export allocations will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis. Company-specific export allocations based on export history may be made in the future.
