Canadian International Trade Tribunal Finds Injury

Aluminum Extrusions From China

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 17, 2009) - The Canadian International Trade Tribunal today found that the dumping and subsidizing of custom-shaped and standard-shaped aluminum extrusions, excluding certain products, originating in or exported from the People's Republic of China have caused injury to the domestic producers. Anti-dumping and countervailing duties will therefore be collected by the Canada Border Services Agency. The complainants in this case were Almag Aluminum Inc. of Brampton, Ontario, Apel Extrusions Limited of Calgary, Alberta, Can Art Aluminum Extrusion Inc. of Brampton, Ontario, Metra Aluminum Inc. of Laval, Quebec, Signature Aluminum Canada Inc. of Richmond Hill, Ontario, Spectra Aluminum Products Ltd. of Bradford, Ontario and Spectra Anodizing Inc. of Woodbridge, Ontario.

The Tribunal will issue the reasons for its findings by April 1, 2009.

The Tribunal is an independent quasi-judicial body that reports to Parliament through the Minister of Finance. It hears cases on dumped and subsidized imports, safeguard complaints, complaints about federal government procurement and appeals of customs and excise tax rulings. When requested by the federal government, the Tribunal also provides advice on other economic, trade and tariff matters.
