Get help with foreign trade barriers from Global Affairs Canada

Global Affairs Canada announced the launch of a new web page, called Register a trade barrier, for Canadian exporters dealing with trade barriers.

Through this new web page Canadian businesses can register a trade barrier and then work with the Canadian Trade Commissioner Service and partner departments to address trade barriers affecting their exports or investments abroad.

Global Affairs notes that Canadian businesses often face numerous challenges in doing business in new markets, including trade barriers, such as policies and regulations, that hinder trade in goods and services as well as investments.

These might include excessive tariffs or labelling and local content requirements that are discriminatory or more burdensome than necessary.
