Notice is hereby given that, after completing its inquiry, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (the Tribunal) made a determination (File No. PR-2015-064) on May 26, 2016, with respect to a complaint filed by MasterBedroom Inc. (MasterBedroom), of Whitby, Ontario, 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. B3275-150511/A) by the Department of Public Works and Government Services on behalf of the Department of Citizenship and Immigration. The solicitation was for the supply of basic household furniture to individuals or families in Toronto and elsewhere in Ontario.

Having examined the evidence presented by the parties and considered the provisions of the Agreement on Internal Trade, the North American Free Trade Agreement, the Agreement on Government Procurement, the Canada-Peru Free Trade Agreement and the Canada-Colombia Free Trade Agreement, the Tribunal determined that the complaint was valid.

Further information may be obtained from the Registrar, Canadian International Trade Tribunal Secretariat, 333 Laurier Avenue West, 15th Floor, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0G7, 613-993-3595 (telephone), 613-990-2439 (fax), citt-tcce@tribunal.gc.ca (email).
