Make Yourself Known - Become a "Trusted Trader" Today


There was a time when importers did not want to be "known" by Canada Customs (CBSA). The fear was that if customs had you on their radar your shipments would be targeted and scrutinized closely, ultimately delaying the delivery of your products.

Nothing could be further from the truth. In today's world, it's the opposite approach that provides the greatest benefit to importers. With tightening security measures and emphasis placed on high-risk importers and goods, you want CBSA to know you - that you are a well-informed and compliant importer; that you know who your trading and logistics partners are; and that you have done your due diligence to ensure that your partners are well-informed and compliant.

YOU WANT TO BE A "TRUSTED TRADER"! Become a member of Partners In Protection (PIP).

Some of the benefits of Partners In Protection:

  • When you reach the border your company will be recognized as a Trusted Trader.
  • Your company will have a reduced risk score, which can result in a lower examination rate at the border.
  • Your company will be recognized as a Trusted Trader under the CBSA's mutual recognition arrangements with USA, Japan, Korea and Singapore.
  • Stay up-to-date on customs regulations through PIP's Awareness Sessions.
