Note: The margins of dumping and amounts of subsidy reported in the table above are the margins/amounts determined by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) for purposes of the final determinations of dumping and/or subsidizing. These margins/amounts do not reflect the anti‑dumping/countervailing duties to be levied on future importations of dumped and/or subsidized goods. In the event of an injury finding by the Canadian International Trade Tribunal, normal values and amounts of subsidy have been provided to the exporters which provided sufficient information for future shipments to Canada and these normal values and amounts of subsidy would come into effect the day after the injury finding. Information regarding normal values and amounts of subsidy of the subject goods should be obtained from the exporter. Imports of subject goods from exporters/producers that did not provide sufficient information to the CBSA during the dumping and/or subsidizing investigations and who are not listed in the table above will be subject to the All Other Exporters anti‑dumping/countervailing duty rate pursuant to a ministerial specification.

Normally, normal values will not be applied retroactively. However, this measure may be applied retroactively in cases where the parties have not advised the CBSA in a timely manner of substantial changes that affect values for SIMA purposes. Therefore, where substantial changes occur in prices, market conditions, costs associated with production and sales of the goods, the onus is on the concerned parties to advise the CBSA.

Please consult the SIMA Self‑Assessment Guide for more detailed information explaining how to determine the amount of SIMA duties owing.
