Lynden Canada Co. Canada Transportation Solutions


Non-Resident Importer Program

A Non-Resident Importer (NRI) is a company who, in most cases, does not have a physical presence in Canada, yet for purposes of customs and GST, acts as the importer of record for goods sold/consigned into Canada. As an NRI, you will relieve your Canadian customers of the responsibilities of importation, making it easier for them to buy from you. For example, a U.S. supplier may be required, by its Canadian customer, to ship its goods "delivery/duty paid" and therefore must become an NRI.

With the increasing demand for imports into Canada as a result of free-trade, many U.S. companies are discovering the commercial advantages of selling to their Canadian customers on a landed basis in order to expand their markets north of the border.

As an industry leader Lynden Canada recognizes the importance of assisting our U.S. customers to maximize sales in their Canadian market. Our Non-Resident Importer Program can help you to:

  • Create a domestic environment when selling in Canada
  • Sell on a delivered price basis
  • Manage your landed cost
  • Remove the border and increase sales for your Canadian customers
  • Access greater share in the Canadian market place
  • Realize on time deliveries
  • Increase your profits
