Importation process workshop scheduled for Markham

October 31, 2016 by  

Businesses that import goods into the country may be interested in attending an upcoming Markham event that will provide information about the process.

The workshop will teach participants about the step-by step procedure for the importation of items. They will learn how to classify the products according to the current regulations, as well as the determination of valuation and origin, when duty deferral programs should be applied, and the proper application of adjustments and corrections.

In addition to this, there will be a discussion of Free Trade Agreements and how they may apply to their particular business activities. Finally, they will be supplied with a list of links that may be of use to them. Printing techniques such as binding can be used to create materials for distribution to all those who participate in the information session.

The seminar has been organized by the Small Business Enterprise Centres in York region, and will be facilitated by Amelia Ng, who was formerly a Canada Border Services Agency Officer who has since retired. She has a large amount of experience in the importation process, and will be sharing her knowledge with the attendees.

The event will be held at Markham’s Thornhill Community Centre Library on November 25 from 10:00 am until 12:30 pm, and will be free of charge to attend.
