Having considered the comments received from current allocation holders and the current state of NAFTA TPL utilization, the Minister of International Trade has decided to amend the above-noted policies.
Therefore, effective July 5, 2010, the current balance of un-allocated TPL for the 2010 allocation year will be available on a first-come, first-served basis to exporters once they have utilized their current allocation.
On January 1, 2011, TPL will be allocated on the basis of 2010 performance with any remaining balance made available on a first-come, first-served basis during the course of the year.
The transfer of wool apparel TPL between allocation holders will no longer be permitted and the current 25% return to the Minister policy will be maintained. A Notice to Exporters with further details will be issued in the near future. Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Ms. Chris Brock at 613-944-1805.
