Non-Resident Importer (NRI) Program
The Non-Resident Importer (NRI) Program simplifies the ordering process for foreign businesses selling to Canadian customers. Foreign exporters can sell to Canada on a delivered-price basis thanks to the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) initiative, making the transaction feel like a Canadian domestic transaction and taking the burden of importing off the Canadian purchaser.
A Non-Resident Importer (NRI) is a business located outside of Canada that ships goods to customers in Canada and assumes responsibility for customs clearance and other import-related requirements. This program allows the foreign exporter to include all shipping, customs clearances, duties and taxes in the shipping and handling fees charged to the customer, who could even be charged in Canadian dollars. In this way, the transaction appears to the Canadian consumer as a domestic transaction.
