The Canadian International Trade Tribunal, pursuant to the provisions of subsection 34(2) of the Special Import Measures Act, has conducted a preliminary injury inquiry into whether the evidence discloses a reasonable indication that the alleged injurious dumping of silicon metal containing at least 96.00% but less than 99.99% silicon by weight, and silicon metal containing between 89.00% and 96.00% silicon by weight that contains aluminum greater than 0.20% by weight, of all forms and sizes, originating in or exported from the Federative Republic of Brazil, the Republic of Kazakhstan, Lao People’s Democratic Republic, Malaysia, the Kingdom of Norway, the Russian Federation and the Kingdom of Thailand, and subsidizing of the above-mentioned goods originating in or exported from the Federative Republic of Brazil, the Republic of Kazakhstan, Malaysia, the Kingdom of Norway and the Kingdom of Thailand, have caused injury or are threatening to cause injury to the domestic industry.

This preliminary injury inquiry follows the notification, on February 20, 2017, that the President of the Canada Border Services Agency had initiated investigations into the alleged injurious dumping and subsidizing of the above-mentioned goods.
