Accessing Ottawa 2019: A Forum for Customs Brokers and their Clients

IMPORTANT: Registration is open to employees of customs broker member firms along with their clients (please register yourself and your client(s) at the same time).

Following last year’s success, we are very excited to announce that this year we will be hosting Accessing Ottawa once again!

Specially designed for CSCB customs brokers and their clients, this event is an opportunity to strengthen your relationship with a client through shared learning, as our expert presenters deliver the latest news of the greatest interest to traders. Additionally, and for the first time at Accessing Ottawa, we are offering a Government of Canada marketplace where attendees will have the opportunity for one-on-one discussions with representatives from a variety of government departments.

  • Bring a Client to Ottawa. Enrich your partnership through shared learning.
  • Gather the information that you need to mitigate the risks associated with import compliance.
  • Look to the future, as contemplated by federal authorities, and gather the “intel” that you need for your own business planning efforts.
  • Visit our Marketplace for one-on-one discussions, about issues that matter to your business, with representatives of CBSA and other federal departments and agencies.
