Non-Resident Importer Program

A Non-Resident Importer (NRI) is a company that, in most cases, does not have a physical presence in Canada, yet for purposes of customs and Goods and Services Tax (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.

Sell your products in Canada without the need for a physical location in Canada.
Companies expanding into the Canadian market.

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  to expand their markets north of the border.
