The Complexities Of Importing into Canada

Much like the USA, Canada has a thriving Technology industry. This is evident in the sheer number of Tech multinationals across the value chain with both headquarters and data centers in Canada as well as the proportion of daily internet users, which reaches close to 90%.  

As with most countries, the compliance required to bring Tech and Medical goods both in and out of Canada can be difficult to acquire and requires a locally registered entity. One major consideration when shipping to Canada is that Canadian customs reserve the right to inspect any goods coming through. So, correct classification is essential to avoid delays.
