Do you have questions about Exporting to Canada? If so, DRC has answers.


DRC has developed and released Exporting to Canada: frequently asked questions from companies outside of Canada. The Q&A document, logo and visual presentation were launched at the recent CPMA convention and trade show in Vancouver, BC.

The information offers an overview of the DRC and its services, its jurisdiction in domestic and international disputes as well as the dispute resolution process and enforcement of arbitration awards. The brochure is available in English, French and Spanish and while the target audience may be those looking to export to Canada, the information is also of interest and value to anyone trading in the fresh produce business who is not familiar with or a member of the DRC.

For Canadians, the anticipated coming into force of the Safe Food for Canadians Regulations is important as it includes a regulatory requirement for those who buy, sell, import or export fresh fruits and vegetables to be a DRC member unless exempt. A key message for those looking to export to Canada is “do not sell to or buy from a person in Canada who is not a DRC member”.

“Packaging the information in this format is timely given the increase in inquiries from companies interested in knowing more about doing business in Canada as well as our targeted outreach to a number of embassies and trade facilitation offices” notes DRC President & CEO, Fred Webber.
