A proud legacy spanning more than 65 years
We have supported clients with long-standing, secure, reliable and reasonably priced services for more than 65 years. With the benefit of our broad and deep industry sector experience and partnerships, we have become a leading western Canadian trade services company.
We are values-driven and engaged
Courtney Agencies takes community and social responsibility seriously. We recognize that doing so is essential to serving our clients over the long-term and to thriving as a multi-generational family-owned business.
A volunteer for more than 25 years, Paul Courtney is a past board director of the Canadian Society of Customs Brokers (CSCB) and encourages staff to continue their education and involvement with the professional association. Paul now serves as a director on the national Board of the Canadian International Freight Forwarders’ Association (CIFFA) to which, among other attributes, he brings a customs and compliance perspective to the table.
We have years of collective experience advising clients on how to move their goods across international borders quickly, correctly and safely. We boast a strong network of trusted global relationships with whom we partner to move goods around the world.
Care and concern for the environment
We care about our environmental impact at Courtney Agencies. Originally certified over a decade ago, in 2020 we renewed our Climate Smart training and certification. We measure our carbon emissions and renew our reduction plan.
We have diverse and loyal clients
Some clients have been with Courtney for 50 years. We’ve literally grown with them. We serve multinational and locally-owned family businesses, and offer them deep knowledge and expertise across many industries.
We embrace technology
We have a history as early adopters of new technology. We transitioned to Single Window Initiative (SWI) in early 2019 which allows for faster customs release times and lets us process any type of shipment without waiting for it to arrive at the Canadian border.
