New Foreign Trade Zone Point created in Quebec City

The Federal Government announced the creation of a Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) Point in the Quebec City metropolitan area.

An FTZ Point is a strategic location identified for international trade and foreign direct investment which is uniquely supported by a single-point of access to information on relevant government policies and programs.

FTZ supported activities include, for example, the Duties Relief Program, the Drawback Program, the Customs Bonded Warehouses Program, the Export Distribution Centre Program and the Exporters of Processing Services Program.

To establish the Quebec City Foreign Trade Zone point, Quebec International partnered with the cities of Quebec and Lévis, the Port of Quebec and the Quebec City Jean Lesage International Airport.

This is the ninth FTZ point in Canada and the first in the Province of Quebec.
