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.
