Export Information

Export controls are applied by many governments as a means to regulate, and sometimes deny, trade in specific lists of military and dual-use goods and technologies. The principal objective of export controls is to ensure that exports of certain goods and technology are consistent with Canada’s foreign and defence policies.
Canada’s Export and Import Permits Act authorizes the Minister of Foreign Affairs to issue to any resident of Canada a permit to export items included on the Export Control List or to a country included on the Area Control List, subject to certain terms and conditions.
