Shipping to Canada Looking to expand your business to Canada? It’s important to learn the players, terms, and regulatory requirements before shipping to Canada. With over 30 million people and active manufacturing, lumber, food and oil and gas sectors, Canada is an attractive market for U.S. companies looking to grow and expand their customer base and their supply chains. But even though these two countries share a long border and enjoy strong relations, as with any market, there are rules and regulations that govern the movement of goods across that border. The Customs Professional’s Toolkit: Shipping to Canada gives you the insight you need to acheive success in Canada.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
