Get help with foreign trade barriers from Global Affairs Canada
Global Affairs Canada can help Canadian exporters and investors dealing with trade barriers in foreign countries.
Canadian businesses can register such a trade barrier and then work with the Canadian Trade Commissioner Service and partner departments to address trade barriers affecting their exports or investments abroad.
Global Affairs notes that Canadian businesses often face numerous challenges in doing business in new markets, including trade barriers in the form of policies and regulations, that hinder trade in goods and services as well as investments.
These might include excessive tariffs or labelling and local content requirements that are discriminatory or more burdensome than necessary.
