Our Training Service

A complex domain

The importation and exportation of goods between Canada and the United States are governed by numerous customs laws and regulations administered respectively by the Canada Borders Services Agency and the U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Furthermore, numerous departments and agencies are involved and legislate in matters of international trade – making it a complex domain. It is therefore important that all persons involved in the customs activities of a company acquire a sufficient knowledge of Canadian and American requirements and of the basic rules of international trade.

Importation into Canada

Whether you are a small business or a multinational company, customs compliance is now a reality. It is now imperative that all parties involved in customs-related activities acquire a minimal knowledge of Canadian customs requirements and of the basic rules of international trade.

That is why Affiliated's training aims to introduce:

  • The general ins and outs of customs
  • The joint responsibilities of the broker and the importer

It will thus be possible for you to ensure compliance and take advantage of favourable clauses in laws and commercial agreements. Participants will get to know the customs clearance process, as well as the documentation and record keeping requirements of the Canada Borders Services Agency.

Duration: 7 hours
