Cross-border supply chains are vital to ensure the continued flow of goods between Canada and the USA. Manufacturing companies located in the Windsor-Essex Region and Detroit/Southeastern Michigan and beyond rely on a strong and integrated supply chain that transcends the US-Canada border.

The impact of COVID-19 has been quite disruptive to our local and regional economies. While the decision to close the border to non-essential travel has been well-received and understood, with economies opening up on both sides of the border, there are increasing questions by manufacturing companies on how best to facilitate cross-border commercial trade.

If you are a manufacturing company that conducts cross-border business you will want to watch the recording of this webinar. CBSA representatives offered guidance on what is needed by American Business Travelers to enter Canada and what Canadian Business Travelers can expect when they return to Canada so that essential business can be conducted in a safe manner.
