Canadian softwood lumber negotiators held a one-day meeting with their U.S. counterparts in Ottawa this week but there was no report of progress on the contentious trade issue.
Alex Lawrence, a spokesman for International Trade Minister Chrystia Freeland, described the meeting, held Thursday, as "an informative exchange."
Officials said they expect talks to resume shortly, but no date has yet been set.
The two sides are under pressure to reach a deal before October, a one-year period since the previous agreement expired in which neither side can take punitive actions.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and President Barack Obama vowed in March to begin 100 days of talks aimed at reaching a new agreement. They are expected to provide an update when Obama visits Ottawa on June 29 for the so-called "Three Amigos" summit that includes Mexico's president.
