Exporting to Canada can be an easy process or difficult depending upon your knowledge and resources. Many US Companies have been setting up as Non-Resident Importers without knowing all the facts and or not enough preparation before they start using the NRI option for their sales advantage to Canada.I always remember and refer to the Boy Scouts motto “Be Prepared” for reviewing the NRI process before you export your goods to Canada.

B â?? Begin the information gathering, find out what is needed to import your   product into Canada, are there any     special permits or licenses needed?

 P â?? Plan how you are going to ship and distribute your products in Canada.     Consolidate or Ship direct?
