In accordance with section 777(A)(e)(2)(B) of the Act, we calculated a single country–wide ad valorem subsidy rate of 17.18 percent in the Final Results to be applied to all producers and exporters of the subject merchandise from Canada, other than those producers that have been excluded from the order and those producers receiving an individual rate in this review. In accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e), we are amending the Final Results to correct ministerial errors. As a result of amending the calculations of the Final Results, the country–wide rate changed to 16.37 percent ad valorem. We have determined that Fontaine Inc., Les Produits Forestiers Dube Inc., Scierie West Brome Inc., and Scierie Lapointe & Roy Ltee. each received zero or de minimis net subsidies during the period of review. We have also determined to rescind the reviews with respect to Bear Lumber Ltd., Bois Daaquam Inc., Cambie Cedar Products Ltd., Midway Lumber Mills Ltd., Nickel Lake Lumber, Twin Rivers Cedar Products Ltd., and Uphill Wood Supply Inc.

Filed by Petitioners and Canadian Parties; Amendment to the Ad Valorem 
Rate Calculated in the Notice of Amended Final Results of 
Countervailing Duty Administrative Review: Certain Softwood Lumber 
Products from Canada,'' dated February 16, 2005, which is on file in 
the Central Records Unit, room B-099 of the main Department building.
    In accordance with section 777(A)(e)(2)(B) of the Act, we 
calculated a single country-wide ad valorem subsidy rate of 17.18 
percent in the Final Results to be applied to all producers and 
exporters of the subject merchandise from Canada, other than those 
producers that have been excluded from the order and those producers 
receiving an individual rate in this review. In accordance with section 
751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e), we are amending the Final 
Results to correct ministerial errors. As a result of amending the 
calculations of the Final Results, the country-wide rate changed to 
16.37 percent ad valorem.
    We have determined that Fontaine Inc., Les Produits Forestiers Dube 
Inc., Scierie West Brome Inc., and Scierie Lapointe & Roy Ltee. each 
received zero or de minimis net subsidies during the period of review. 
We have also determined to rescind the reviews with respect to Bear 
Lumber Ltd., Bois Daaquam Inc., Cambie Cedar Products Ltd., Midway

Determination and Notice of Countervailing Duty Order: Certain Softwood 
Lumber Products from Canada, 67 FR 36068 (May 22, 2002), as corrected 
(67 FR 37775, May 30, 2002), Final Results of Countervailing Duty 
Expedited Reviews: Certain Softwood Lumber Products from Canada, 68 FR

Rescission of Countervailing Duty Expedited Reviews, and Company 
Exclusions: Certain Softwood Lumber Products From Canada, 69 FR 10982 
(March 9, 2004).
    Finally, certain softwood lumber products from the Maritime 
Provinces are exempt from this countervailing duty order. This 
exemption, however, does not apply to softwood lumber products produced 
in the Maritime Provinces from Crown timber harvested in any other 
province.
    In accordance with 19 CFR 356.8, we will instruct CBP, on or after 
the 41st day after publication of the amended final results of this 
review, to liquidate shipments of certain softwood lumber products from 
Canada entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption from May 
22, 2002, through March 31, 2003, at the above indicated company-
specific and aggregate ad valorem net subsidy rates. We will direct CBP 
to exempt from the application of the order only entries of softwood 
lumber products from Canada which are accompanied by an original 
Certificate of Origin issued by the Maritime Lumber Bureau (MLB), and 
those of the excluded companies listed above.
    In addition, we will instruct CBP to collect cash deposits of 
estimated countervailing duties in the amounts indicated above of the 
f.o.b. price on all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of 
publication of these amended final results of review.
    We are issuing and publishing this determination and notice in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1), 751(h) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: February 16, 2005.
