Connecting with an International Events and Convention Services Program (IECSP) coordinator one to six months prior to your planned event is the best way for planners from other countries or Canadian planners with delegates attending their event from outside of Canada to ensure an easy entry process.
Your IESCP coordinator will be able to assist and provide advice on a wide range of topics, including:
- Visa requirements
- Border requirements
- Duties and taxes
- Fee exemptions and tax incentives
- Suggestions for moving goods from the Canadian border to the event venue
