Is the Non-Resident Importer Program for you?
Canada represents a growing market of over 34 million affluent consumers. 90% of the population lives within 100 miles of the Canada U.S. border, meaning most major markets can be accessed from existing American supply chains. Furthermore, the Canadian consumer greatly resembles the American consumer, with similar buying habits and a high mean annual income.
As a US based exporter, your ability to effectively simplify and manage the import process is key to increasing your competitive advantage and building success at penetrating this important market. You need to make the process as simple and as easy for your Canadian customers as it is for your US customers. The Non-Resident Importer (NRI) program was designed to help US based exporters achieve just this.
