Advocacy

I.E.Canada is the ONLY association that advocates on behalf of Canadian importers and exporters. We advocate to facilitate the flow of international trade, enabling our members to improve their competitiveness.

Ensuring the smooth flow of goods across borders today goes well beyond filling out the proper customs paperwork and paying the applicable duties and taxes. At the global and national levels, a vast array of initiatives intended to address security, as well as health and safety and environmental concerns, are impacting the international movement of goods.

Drawing upon the experience and expertise of its members and supported by a dedicated team of professional staff, I.E.Canada tackles a broad range of issues from the modernization and simplification of customs procedures to export controls to food and consumer product safety.

Our committees play an integral part in this advocacy work.
