Although most Canadian business owners inherently recognize the USA market offers some of the greatest economic opportunities in the world, they also know the prospect of doing business across the line can be a complex undertaking. That is why this seminar on how to conduct business in the USA will be an invaluable step for Canadian businesses looking to access American business solutions in the massive USA market.

 

This fast-paced seminar is geared towards those who have questions ranging from how does one plan for opening a store front with a USA address as well as partnering with a distribution centre on e-commerce activity. It also covers the question of how might the current and proposed changes in international trade and immigration with the USA impact Canadian sellers. Our seasoned cross-border lawyers, accountants, customs brokers and logistics professionals will present options that will help you determine your export strategy and understand your responsibilities with government agencies such as U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Secretary of State and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

    Hi there,

    As a Canadian based importer/distributor that does business in the US, I have a continuous bond with PCB and will be using them for shipping and brokerage once the business picks up and orders increase. I’m keenly interested in taking this seminar but don’t live in the lower mainland, and will in fact be away on business when the seminar takes place. Am i able to gain access to written course material at all?

    Thanks
