Quota Utilization Update
For periods A-162 and A-163, our quota utilization averaged 101.95% This means that for this two period CFC allocation block, BC will not be in a monetary overmarketing position nationally. Monetary penalties begin when a province exceeds the average of 102% over an even odd (example A-162 and A-163) two period allocation block.
