Table of Contents


1.0 Background

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

1.2 Export allocations may be issued to eligible applicants. Export allocation eligibility criteria have been established after consultation with the respective provinces. For more information on the allocation methodologies for each region operating under Option B please see Notice to Exporters Serial No. 167.

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 2010 under the Agreement. This listing is based on the province in which the company has received an export allocation. See Appendixes 1, 2, 3 and 4, for a list of Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba and Saskatchewan allocation holders, respectively. Please note that this list may be subject to change.

3.0 Saskatchewan Information

3.1 The list for Saskatchewan includes only those eligible firms that were allocated a share of the Saskatchewan Regional Quota Volume (RQV). The remaining RQV is available to all exporters on a first-come, first-served basis.
