Canada and the U.S. enjoy one of the most
productive trading relationships in the world


More than $575 billion worth of goods flow between our borders each year, including $4.6 billion in softwood lumber from British Columbia alone.

American demand for softwood lumber exceeds what domestic mills can produce, which is why the U.S. relies on quality Canadian products to increase supply.

Proposed trade restrictions on softwood lumber from Canada will impede U.S. economic growth by driving up the cost of building homes and reducing jobs in the sector.
