Additional information on Non-Resident Importers.
A Non-Resident Importer (NRI) is a business based outside of Canada that does not have a physical presence in Canada, but imports goods into Canada as the Importer of Record.
The Non-Resident Importer (NRI) Program is an initiative of the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) that allows United States / international exporters to sell products to Canadian customers directly on a delivered-price basis, without the need for a physical presence in Canada.
Registering as an NRI offers many benefits, including more control over your supply chain, an increased presence in the competitive Canadian marketplace, and the opportunity to provide better service to Canadian customers.
We can help!
Normally, it can take 3-4 weeks to become registered as an NRI. At BorderBuddy, we can reduce that time to within 24 hours of submitting your paperwork. We will make sure this is done quickly and properly, and we can guide you through any questions you may have about importing to Canada. You could be fully licensed and ready to start shipping in 48 hours – that is the beauty of using BorderBuddy! Simply fill out our contact form, and an NRI specialist will reach out to you shortly.
Visit the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) for more information on the NRI program.

Amanda Burr at BorderBuddy made our shipment seamless and her customer service was outstanding. Without question, we will work with Amanda and BorderBuddy again in the future. Thanks Amanda!
“I used BorderBuddy when were in a jam with a small tile shipment to Canada — just called them randomly after a Google search. Blair handled our case, and was in constant communication with updates, and got our shipment released within 24 hours, even though we were starting the process from scratch. Based on this experience, I can’t recommend Blair and the BorderBuddy team highly enough. Even though this was just a small shipment, they handled it like it was the most important on their agenda. We will definitely work with them again in the future – hopefully though, not on an emergency basis! THANK YOU!!”
company is always so very helpful in getting things across the border without any headaches. Tara was our agent this time around and she was prompt in answering any questions, super polite over the phone and coordinated everything for us. Highly recommend using their services.
