Webinar: The Logistics of Doing Business in Canada - Temporarily Moving Service Exporters Across the Border
When: Thursday, January 30, 2014 - 13:00 - Thursday, January 30, 2014 - 14:00

Canada is the largest single export market for the U.S. and is a highly receptive market for U.S. goods and services. 
The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and Canada’s geographic proximity have afforded U.S. firms with a significant advantage in selling to Canada’s markets. Are you maximizing your opportunity? Whether you currently export to Canada or are new to exporting, the importance of developing a strategic approach to this market is critical to your success. This four part series has been designed to help businesses strengthen the skills necessary to effectively do business in Canada. 

Each webinar can be attended individually or as a series.

This webinar will assist U.S. service companies, such as architects, 
engineers and technicians in identifying the process for sending temporary workers to Canada to perform after-sales warranty repairs, business development and other tasks. Questions covered, include: 

  • Do I need to get a visa to do temporary work in Canada? 
  • Does NAFTA apply to my company? 
  • What documentation is required to send a temporary worker to Canada? 
  • What are the tax implications for my company and my employees in doing work in Canada.

Cost: $35
