Export Distribution Centre Program

Canada Revenue Agency (CRA)

If your non-manufacturing business adds limited value to goods in the course of processing or distribution activities, you might not have to pay GST/HST when you:

  • Acquire or import most inventory or parts
  • Import a customer's goods for processing

To participate in the program, you need to request an authorization certificate. The certificate is valid for 3 years, unless revoked, and can be renewed.

You must be export-ready and registered for GST/HST to apply.
