Miller Thomson is pleased to partner with Carson International in our webinar coverage addressing international trade issues and how to best navigate the changes.
The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) administers the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA). SIMA is used to help Canadian producers facing unfair foreign competition in the Canadian marketplace. Unfair foreign completion generally results from injury caused by the dumping and subsidizing of certain imported goods
The CBSA will typically conduct an investigation under SIMA to determine the scope and impact of unfair foreign completion on domestic producers. The purpose of the CBSA’s investigation is to obtain detailed information from exporters and importers, and (foreign) governments in a subsidy investigation, to determine if the goods are indeed being sold to Canadian importers at dumped or subsidized prices. We will review procedures relating to dumping and subsidy investigations by the CBSA and Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) and the type of information that will likely be requested by the CBSA.
Join the conversation to get a better understanding the application of SIMA by the CBSA.
