OCC sends letter to Prime Minister regarding the Canada-US softwood lumber dispute

    Today, in partnership with the Fédération des chambres de commerce du Québec (FCCQ), the OCC sent a letter to Prime Minister Trudeau advocating on behalf of the interests of Canada’s forest industry, which is concerned about new, protectionist measures in a Canada-US softwood lumber dispute.

    Together, we fear the dispute could be lengthy, and jeopardize the competitiveness of many businesses across Canada. We are encouraging the federal government to intervene in this dispute, and we are calling on Prime Minister Trudeau to implement a loan guarantee program for companies affected by the dispute to protect the future of our forest industry and ensure continued economic development in Québec and Ontario.
