Description:

The Canadian Importers Database (CID) provides lists of companies importing goods into Canada, by product, by city, and by country of origin.

  • Find the major Canadian importers based on the products being imported.
  • Find the major Canadian importers based on the city.
  • Find the major Canadian importers based on the country from which they are importing.

The companies listed in this database consist of firms that import specific products into Canada through Customs. The database consists of the names of the companies as well as their locations (city, province and postal code). Companies include both Customs Brokers and their clients. The database includes Non-Resident Importers, companies which have addresses outside of Canada.

Hi, I would like to get the details of the importers into Canada especially to Vancouver
Thank you for your comment. The following response has been posted on behalf of the data owner "Information on importers can currently be found on Industry Canada’s Canadian Importers Database (CID) website: http://www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/cid-dic.nsf/eng/home. By selecting “List by City”, importers in any area can be located by entering a city name (e.g. “Vancouver”) in the search field. Please note that the lists generated from your searches will include only the names of the importers and their postal codes; additional details on each importer will have to be found by using the lists as a starting point for further research outside the Industry Canada site. A dataset from the Canadian Importers Database will soon be made available through the Open Data Portal".

I kindly ask you to provide me with database of Canadian food importers. Thankful in advance.
