Has your Company Reviewed your CA Tariff Classifications Recently?

The 2020 Canadian Tariff Schedule is now available on the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) website.   The Customs Tariff is revised a number of times over the course of the year and it is important that you review your tariff classifications on a regular basis.

Tariff classification is an important factor in almost every release, including duties applied, licenses, permits, certificates and any other information that may be required by other government agencies (OGA). CBSA provides a list of tariff classification numbers that may be subject to OGA conditions.  If your goods are classified in any of these lists, there may be additional requirements that need to be met prior to import.

CBSA manages trade compliance through targeted and random verifications.

If your company would like to learn more about trade compliance, please contact our regulatory team at

COVID-19 is a global challenge. Keeping our supply chains moving is important for maintaining the health and wellbeing of citizens and businesses. While the Canada - U.S. border is now closed to non-essential traffic, it is still open for trade and commerce. We are committed to doing our part for global supply chains.

We are protecting the health and safety of our employees. They are working from home, except for critical functions that require certain equipment or managing paper/courier flow. In those cases we are following social distancing guidelines.

We are open and available to assist you, and key players in your supply chains. Our dedicated staff are available 24/7 and our brokerage and logistics experts are available to help you make adjustments to your supply chain, if necessary.

We encourage you to check out the government programs available to families, businesses, exporters and importers. And, while respecting the need for social distancing we encourage everyone, including our staff, to reach out and remain connected to family, friends, colleagues and customers.

Stay safe.
