CBSA anti-dumping and countervailing program - evaluation report: PS38-89/2017E-PDF

"Anti-dumping and Countervailing (ADCV) programs have existed in Canada since 1904 to provide a domestic redress mechanism against unfair trade practices by foreign companies. Dumping refers to when goods are sold to domestic importers at a lower price than the selling price of those goods in the country of export (or that they are sold in Canada for an unprofitable price). In addition, foreign governments may subsidize their exports to gain an unfair market advantage; in response, Canada may impose countervailing duties (CVD) equal to the amount of subsidy on the goods to ensure a fair market price. The purpose of the evaluation is to determine the degree to which the ADCV Program within the CBSA supports the delivery of the Government of Canada and CBSA trade remedy-related priorities and the performance, efficiency and economy of the ADCV program based on the logic model for the program in place at the time of the evaluation. A new logic model is currently under development and may reflect different outcomes and/or indicators in future evaluations. The evaluation is part of the Agency's 2014–2019 Five-Year Program Evaluation Plan. This is the first evaluation of the ADCV Program"--Executive summary, p. [7, 8].
