Least Developed Countries Update (LDC) & the Import/Export process.
Germain LeBlanc, of Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) will provide an update on the Least Developed Countries Program, and outline how CBSA audits the program. He will also give an overview of common trade practices when importing goods into Canada.
Germain has presented this as a webinar twice for the CAF in the last 2 years. Since the introduction of the LDC program in 2003 many apparel importers have used it to import duty-free from countries such as Bangladesh and Cambodia. Imports are subject to audit by CBSA and the documentation requirements in particular- are substantial.
