The Canadian International Trade Tribunal initiates a preliminary injury inquiry into a complaint by Nutri-Pea and Roquette Canada of Portage la Prairie, Man., that they have suffered injury as a result of the dumping and subsidizing of pea protein from the People’s Republic of China. The tribunal’s inquiry is conducted pursuant to the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA), as a result of the initiation of dumping and subsidizing investigations by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA).

On June 20, 2024, the tribunal will determine whether there is a reasonable indication that the alleged dumping and subsidizing have caused injury or retardation, or are threatening to cause injury, as these words are defined in SIMA. If so, CBSA will continue its investigations and, by July 19, 2024, will make preliminary determinations. If these preliminary determinations indicate that there has been dumping or subsidizing, CBSA will then continue its investigations and, concurrently, the tribunal will initiate a final injury inquiry.

Any interested person, association or government that wishes to participate in the tribunal’s inquiry may do so by filing a Form I – Notice of Participation.
