Version of section 63 from 2013-04-01 to 2014-12-31:


Marginal note:Extension order

  •  (1) Subject to subsections (4) and (4.1), if, at any time before the expiry of an order with respect to any goods made under this subsection, subsection 55(1) or section 60 or under subsection 5(3), (3.2) or (4.1) of the Export and Import Permits Act, it appears to the satisfaction of the Governor in Council, as a result of an inquiry made by the Canadian International Trade Tribunal under section 30.07 of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal Act, that

    • (a) an order continues to be necessary to prevent or remedy serious injury to domestic producers of like or directly competitive goods, and

    • (b) there is evidence that the domestic producers of like or directly competitive goods are adjusting, as determined in accordance with any regulations made under paragraph 40(b) of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal Act,

    the Governor in Council may, on the recommendation of the Minister, make an extension order imposing a surtax on any goods specified in the previous order imported from any country specified in the extension order.

  • Marginal note:Scope and rate

    (2) If an extension order is made under subsection (1),

    • (a) the extension order applies to goods imported into Canada, or any region or part of Canada, specified in the order during the period that the order is in effect; and

    • (b) the rate of the surtax imposed by the extension order must, subject to subsection (3),

      • (i) be at a rate specified in the extension order, or

      • (ii) be at a rate specified in the extension order that varies from time to time as the quantity of the goods imported into Canada or that region or part of Canada during a period specified in the order equals or exceeds totals specified in the order.

  • Marginal note:Maximum rate

    (3) The rate specified in the extension order may not exceed

    • (a) the lowest of any rates previously imposed with respect to the goods under subsection (1) or 55(1) or section 60; and

    • (b) the rate that in the opinion of the Governor in Council is sufficient to prevent or remedy serious injury to domestic producers of like or directly competitive goods and to facilitate the adjustment of the domestic producers.

  • Marginal note:Exception for goods imported from a free trade partner

    (4) An order made under subsection (1) may apply to goods imported from a free trade partner only if it appears to the satisfaction of the Governor in Council, on the basis of a report made under the Canadian International Trade Tribunal Act, that

    • (a) the quantity of those goods represents a substantial share of the total imports of goods of the same kind;

    • (b) in the case of goods imported from a NAFTA country, the quantity of those goods, alone or, in exceptional circumstances, together with the quantity of goods of the same kind imported from each other NAFTA country, contributes importantly to the serious injury or threat of serious injury to domestic producers of like or directly competitive goods; and

    • (c) in the case of goods imported from any other free trade partner, the quantity of those goods contributes importantly to the serious injury or threat of serious injury to domestic producers of like or directly competitive goods.

  • Marginal note:Exception for goods imported

    (4.1) An order made under subsection (1) may exclude goods of any kind imported from one of the following countries if it appears to the satisfaction of the Governor in Council, on the basis of a report under the Canadian International Trade Tribunal Act, that the quantity of those goods being imported is not a principal cause of serious injury or threat of serious injury to domestic producers of like or directly competitive goods:

    • Colombia
    • Panama
    • Peru
  • Marginal note:Period and repeal of extension orders

    (5) Every extension order made under subsection (1)

    • (a) remains in effect, subject to this section, for the period that is specified in the order, but the total of the specified period and the periods during which the goods were subject to related orders made under subsection (1) or 55(1) or section 60 or under subsection 5(3), (3.2) or (4.1) of the Export and Import Permits Act may not exceed eight years; and

    • (b) may, notwithstanding any other provision of this section, be amended or repealed at any time by the Governor in Council on the recommendation of the Minister, unless, before that time, a resolution directing that the order cease to have effect has been adopted by both Houses of Parliament under section 64.
