Specially designed for CSCB customs brokers and their clients, this event opens the door to Ottawa’s border management strategy and the people who make and implement the decisions that impact the millions of commercial shipments that enter and exit Canada. Throughout the day-long conference program, there will be opportunities to hear and learn from federal government representatives who are at the front line in working with the CSCB to make a positive difference in the administration of trade law and policy in Canada.

  • Bring a client to Ottawa. Strengthen your partnership through shared learning.
  • Listen to the challenges of Canada’s federal border managers and share those of your client.
  • Learn details about the Government of Canada’s plans for international trade.
  • Improve border policies and practices through increased awareness and understanding of mutual and unique commercial trade interests.
