After conducting a preliminary injury inquiry the Canadian International Trade Tribunal announced that it found a reasonable indication that the dumping of wheat gluten from Australia, Austria, Belgium, France, Germany and Lithuania has caused injury or is threatening to cause injury to the domestic industry.

On August 14, 2020 the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) initiated an investigation into the alleged injurious dumping of the goods in question following a complaint filed by Canadian manufacturers.

Now that the Tribunal ruled on the question of injury, the CBSA will investigate to confirm that the imports are indeed being dumped and subsidized and will make a preliminary determination by November 12, 2020.

Provisional anti-dumping duties could soon be applicable to imports of the goods under investigation. In such a case the preliminary decisions of the Tribunal and the CBSA will have to be confirmed by final decisions.
