Canadian International Trade Tribunal

It is an independent quasi-judicial body that carries out its statutory responsibilities in an autonomous and impartial manner and reports to Parliament through the Minister of Finance.

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal has authority to:

  • conduct inquiries into whether dumped or subsidized imports have caused, or are threatening to cause, material injury to a domestic industry;
  • hear appeals of decisions of the Canada Customs and Revenue Agency made under the Customs Act, the Excise Tax Act and the Special Import Measures Act;
  • conduct inquiries and provide advice on such economic, trade and tariff issues as are referred to the Tribunal by the Governor in Council or the Minister of Finance;
  • conduct inquiries into complaints by potential suppliers concerning procurement by the federal government that is covered by the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), the Agreement on Internal Trade and the World Trade Organization Agreement on Government Procurement;
  • conduct safeguard inquiries into complaints by domestic producers that increased imports are causing, or threatening to cause, serious injury to domestic producers; and
