Lumber I

Sub-subseries consists of records relating to the beginnings of the softwood lumber dispute, commonly referred to as Lumber I. In 1982, when the U.S. lumber industry petitioned the U.S. Department of Commerce (DoC) to impose a countervailing duty. Ultimately, the DoC found that Canada's stumpage system was not specific to any single industry and thus not countervailable. While the DoC made this claim, the United States International Trade Commission (USITC) believed that these Canadian imports did in fact hinder U.S. producers. The U.S. lumber industry chose not to appeal.

Lumber II

Sub-subseries consists of records relating to the second phase of the Canada-U.S. Softwood Lumber Dispute, commonly referred to as Lumber II. In 1986, a U.S. lumber industry group, the Coalition for Fair Lumber Imports, petitioned the Department of Commerce (DoC). The United States International Trade Commission (USITC) once again arrived at the conclusion that Canada's exports unfairly impacted American producers. This time, the DoC did find Canadian forest programs to be countervailable and set a preliminary duty of 15%. Before the subsidy was imposed, the United States and Canada agreed to a Memorandum of Understanding that created a phased tariff. One of the terms of the MOU was that Canada levy an export tax on lumber traveling to the United States. Provinces that were affected had the chance to reduce this tax, if they performed any action meant to counterbalance their subsidies. British Columbia had the tax removed in 1987 while Quebec had it partly lifted in 1988.

Lumber III

Sub-subseries consists of records relating to the third phase of the Canada-U.S. Softwood Lumber Dispute, commonly referred to as Lumber III. In 1991, Canada informed the United States it was withdrawing from the Lumber II Memorandum of Understanding. In response, the Department of Commerce (DoC) initiated a countervailing duty investigation, resulting in the DoC imposing countervailing duties. This time, the Department of Commerce's determination was reviewed by a binational panel organized under the Canada-U.S. Free Trade Agreement (CUSFTA). The panel found that the DoC's determination could not be supported by substantial evidence. In 1996, the United States and Canada reached a five-year trade agreement, The Softwood Lumber Agreement, officially ending Lumber III.
