Notice is hereby given that, after completing its inquiry, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal made a determination (File No. PR-2018-023) on January 2, 2019, with respect to a complaint filed by Horizon Maritime Services Ltd. / Heiltsuk Horizon Maritime Services Ltd. (Heiltsuk Horizon), pursuant to subsection 30.11(1) of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal Act, R.S.C., 1985, c. 47 (4th Supp.), concerning a procurement (Solicitation No. F7017-160056/C) by the Department of Public Works and Government Services (PWGSC) on behalf of the Department of Fisheries and Oceans. The solicitation was for the provision of service from two emergency towing vessels on a time charter basis.

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal hereby gives notice that it will, pursuant to subsection 76.03(3) of the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA), initiate an expiry review of its order (Expiry Review No. RR-2018-007) made on January 7, 2014, in Expiry Review No. RR-2013-002, continuing, without amendment, its order made on January 8, 2009, in Expiry Review No. RR-2008-002, continuing, without amendment, its finding made on January 9, 2004, in Inquiry No. NQ-2003-002, concerning the dumping of hot-rolled carbon steel plate and high-strength low-alloy steel plate not further manufactured than hot-rolled, heat-treated or not, in cut lengths in widths from 24 inches (+/−610 mm) to 152 inches (+/−3,860 mm) inclusive and in thicknesses from 0.187 inch (+/−4.75 mm) to 4 inches (+/−101.6 mm) inclusive, originating in or exported from the Republic of Bulgaria, the Czech Republic and Romania, excluding plate produced to American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) specifications A515 and A516M/A516 Grade 70 in thicknesses greater than 3.125 inches (+/−79.3 mm), universal mill plate, plate for use in the manufacture of pipe and plate having a rolled, raised figure at regular intervals on the surface (also known as floor plate).

In this expiry review, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) will first determine whether the expiry of the order in respect of the subject goods is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping of the subject goods. If the CBSA determines that the expiry of the order in respect of any goods is likely to result in the continuation or resumption of dumping, the Tribunal will then conduct an expiry review to determine if the continued or resumed dumping is likely to result in injury. The CBSA will provide notice of its determinations within 150 days after receiving notice of the Tribunal’s decision to initiate an expiry review, that is, no later than May 27, 2019. The Tribunal will issue its order and its statement of reasons no later than November 4, 2019.

Each person or government wishing to participate in this expiry review must file a notice of participation with the Tribunal on or before June 10, 2019. Each counsel who intends to represent a party in the expiry review must file a notice of representation, as well as a declaration and undertaking, with the Tribunal on or before June 10, 2019.

The schedule for this expiry review is found on the Tribunal’s website.

The Tribunal will hold a public hearing relating to this expiry review in the Tribunal’s Hearing Room No. 1, 18th Floor, 333 Laurier Avenue West, Ottawa, Ontario, commencing on August 19, 2019, at 9:30 a.m., to hear evidence and representations by interested parties. If there are no opposing parties, the Tribunal may explore the possibility of holding a file hearing, i.e. a hearing through written submissions only, instead of an oral hearing.

In accordance with section 46 of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal Act, a person who provides information to the Tribunal and who wishes some or all of the information to be kept confidential must, among other things, submit a non-confidential edited version or summary of the information designated as confidential, or a statement indicating why such a summary cannot be made.

Written submissions, correspondence and requests for information regarding the Tribunal’s portion of this matter should be addressed to the Registrar, Canadian International Trade Tribunal Secretariat, 333 Laurier Avenue West, 15th Floor, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0G7, 613‑993‑3595 (telephone), citt-tcce@tribunal.gc.ca (email).

Further details regarding this expiry review, including the schedule of key events, are contained in the documents entitled “Additional Information” and “Expiry Review Schedule” appended to the notice of commencement of expiry review available on the Tribunal’s website.

Little Brown Myotis (Myotis lucifugus), Northern Myotis (Myotis septentrionalis), and Tri-colored Bat (Perimyotis subflavus) are insectivorous bats listed on Schedule 1 of the Species at Risk Act. The Canadian distribution of Little Brown Myotis includes the boreal forest south of the treeline through to the border of the United States of America.

Northern Myotis is mostly absent from the Canadian Prairies. The Canadian range of Tri-colored Bat encompasses mainland Nova Scotia, southern New Brunswick, Quebec and Ontario. The habitat requirements of temperate-region bats such as these vary by season. In general, the habitat needs of these species include overwintering, summering and swarming habitat.

Notice is hereby given, pursuant to subsection 58(2) of the Species at Risk Act, that 90 days after the date of publication of this notice, subsection 58(1) of the Act will apply to the critical habitat of Little Brown Myotis, Northern Myotis, and Tri-colored Bat, identified in the recovery strategy for these species that is included in the Species at Risk Public Registry, and that is located within Banff National Park of Canada, Georgian Bay Islands National Park of Canada, Fundy National Park of Canada, Glacier National Park of Canada, Jasper National Park of Canada, and Wood Buffalo National Park of Canada, the boundaries of which are described in Schedule 1 to the Canada National Parks Act.
