Webinar: Basics of Importing into Canada

Pacific Customs Brokers is hosting a webinar on the Basics of Importing into Canada. If you are a novice or require some re-training in your Customs knowledge for shipments crossing internationally, then this 60 minute online event will be suited to you. Join us for an overview of the parties involved, H.S. tariff and classification, eligibility for NAFTA and other free trade agreements. Plus, we will walk you through the shipment process from the seller to the delivery destination. We will conclude the session by discussing the possible risks of non-compliance with Canada Border Services Agency and other government departments.
