timber product derived from that timber is manufactured or sold by the
disposition holder.

     (2)  The Minister may from time to time change when timber dues to
which this Division applies are to be calculated if

               (a)  the change is agreed to by the disposition holder
who is liable to pay the timber dues, or

               (b)  the Minister gives the disposition holder liable to

set out in subsection (4).

     (2)  For the purposes of this section, a special fibre shortage
exists if a disposition holder is unable to purchase a supply of fibre that
is suitable for the making of pulp due to

               (a)  the availability of the fibre from traditional
suppliers of the disposition holder being reduced due to the occurrence of
a natural disaster or any fire, or

               (b)  temporary disruptions in the production of fibre
from traditional suppliers of the disposition holder.

     (3)  Subject to the provisions of this section, if, in accordance
with good business practices, a disposition holder would purchase fibre
suitable for the making of pulp to maintain pulp mill production levels in
a year instead of using large coniferous logs harvested under the holder's
disposition and the holder, after making his best efforts, is unable to
purchase the supply of fibre because of a special fibre shortage, the
timber dues for any large coniferous logs used by the holder to make pulp
are, for the period specified by the Minister under subsection (7), the
special timber dues.

     (4)  The special timber dues payable by the disposition holder are
the greater of

               (a)  $1.40 per cubic metre of roundwood, and

special timber dues apply to the large coniferous logs,

               (b)  the holder provides any information that the
Minister requires respecting the situation described in subsection (3), and

               (c)  the Minister approves the application.

     (6)  When the Minister receives an application from a disposition
holder under subsection (5), the Minister shall provide the holder with a
decision within 14 days of receiving the information that the Minister
requires under subsection (5).

     (7)  If there are reasonable grounds to believe that the situation in
subsection (3) applies to the disposition holder who has made an
application under subsection (5), the Minister shall approve the
application of the special timber dues to the large coniferous logs used by
the holder to make pulp for the period specified by the Minister.


16   Section 82(2) is repealed and the following is substituted:

The general rate of dues payable for coniferous timber that is used or will
be used to make lumber, pulp or roundwood timber products in a month in
which the dues determination activity occurs (referred to as the  "payment
month") is calculated as follows:

     (a)  by

               (i)  taking the weekly price for 1000 board feet of
kiln-dried 2x4 Standard and Better Western Spruce, Pine and Fir for the
last week ending in the month preceding the payment month and the 3
immediately preceding weeks, as shown in the publication titled "Random
Lengths", published by Random Lengths Publications Inc.,

               (ii) adjusting each of those 4 prices to Canadian funds
using the exchange rate that is prescribed by the Minister for the
particular week,

               (iii)     averaging those 4 adjusted prices, and

               (iv) reducing that average price by deducting the amount
of duty paid on the timber sold in the payment month, as specified by the
Minister;

     (b)  the general rate of dues payable per cubic metre of roundwood
is the amount shown in Column 2 of the Table that is opposite the random
lengths price range in Column 1 of the Table that contains the reduced

     SCHEDULE 5

     General Rate of Timber Dues
     Deciduous Timber Used to Make Pulp


1   The general rate of dues for deciduous timber that is used or will be
used to make pulp in a month in which the dues determination activity
occurs (referred to as the "payment month") is calculated as follows:

     (a)  by

               (i)  taking the price of northern hardwood kraft pulp
delivered to the United States for the month preceding the payment month as
shown in the publication titled "Pulp and Paper Week" published by Millar
Freeman Inc or, if the published prices are set out as a range of prices,
by taking the mid-point of the range of prices, and

               (ii) adjusting that price to Canadian funds using the
exchange rate that is prescribed by the Minister for the particular month;

     (b)  the general rate of dues payable per cubic metre of roundwood
is the amount shown in Column 2 of the Table that is opposite the hardwood
kraft pulp price range in Column 1 of the Table that contains the adjusted
price referred to in clause (a)(ii).

2(1)  In this section,

     (a)  "adjustment year" means the year in which an adjustment under
subsection (2) is made;

     (b)  "annual price index" means the annual implicit price index for
gross domestic product at market prices as published in the National
Economic and Financial Accounts;

     (c)  "National Economic and Financial Accounts" means the National
Economic and Financial Accounts published by Statistics Canada as Catalogue
