“The Basics: Importing into Canada” is a great introductory session for new importers, and an excellent refresher for experienced importers. Our trade expert will take you through the importing process step by step, covering the shipping process and detailing what you need to do to ensure your goods arrive in Canada without delay. We’ll discuss the information you need to complete your shipping documents accurately and error free, and go over the various methods the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) uses when releasing goods at the border. We’ll also cover a brief overview of the data required when accounting imported goods, as well as the ways you can take advantage of certain trade agreements, such as the Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement (CUSMA), and the impact of CBSA’s CARM, and e-Manifest portals.
This session is great for new importers looking to learn about the process, or for experienced importers in need of a refresher or looking for information about the latest customs and trade regulations.Register for this webinar
